Course summary

Overview

How will climate change affect economic policies in the Global North and the Global South? What is the future of fiscal policy and central banking? What are the economic effects of income and wealth inequality? What drives economic and financial crises? How does shadow banking affect financial stability? What is the role of game theory in economics? What are the gendered effects of recessions?

The MSc Economics equips you with the specialist knowledge that is necessary to answer these and many other questions. The programme provides unique training in both mainstream and heterodox theories and methods. It allows you to develop quantitative and qualitative skills and to apply these to a variety of contemporary economic issues.

Why is the SOAS MSc Economics unique?

  • It provides rigorous training in both mainstream and heterodox economics.
  • It makes explicit links between economic theories and the real world, using pluralist and political economy perspectives.

  • Contemporary topics (like environmental policies and the gendered effects of monetary and fiscal policies) are incorporated in the core modules of the programme; they are not just taught in optional modules.
