Course summary

Policy-makers in government and decision-makers in industry are increasingly looking to behavioural economics for insights into decision-making behaviour. You will have already studied economics, and with this MSc you will take on a specialist, research-training course in this field – blending economic and psychological modelling, complemented by controlled experiments inside and outside the laboratory. UEA pioneered behavioural and experimental economics in the UK and remains a leading centre in the use of experiments in economics. You will be in the best place to benefit from interaction with researchers in the Centre for Behavioural and Experimental Social Science (CBESS), and get the opportunity to learn to conduct experiments in our state-of-the-art Laboratory for Economic and Decision Research (LEDR). This Master’s is ideal if you aim to work as a professional economist in government, industry, international agencies or other similar organisations.

Our MSc Behavioural and Experimental Economics is part of our Academic and Professional Programme – designed for people who want to pursue a career as a professional economist within government and industry or move into PhD study.

It’s ideal for you if you have already studied economics. You should have a good undergraduate degree (equivalent to a 2:1 or 1st) with a substantial component of economics, or a graduate diploma in economics.

On this programme you will benefit from intensive research-led training in advanced economic theory, econometrics and research methods, as well as the speciality of Behavioural and Experimental Economics. There are taught modules in Behavioural and Experimental Economics, Economic Theory and Econometrics, and a dissertation towards the end of the year.

This course incorporates the techniques of calculus and matrix algebra and an introduction to the specialist econometric software that you will use in your MSc programme. While not compulsory, we strongly recommend you take advantage of this fantastic opportunity.
