This course in Economics leads to the award of a Master in Science (Economics) (M.Sc. (Econ)). The objective of the course is to provide well-qualified graduates in economics and related disciplines with the training required to work as economists in the public, private and non-profit sectors or to enter Ph.D. programmes in economics. The course focuses on the technical skills needed to undertake economic research and emphasises active and problem-based learning to ensure mastery of the required skills.The course has two strands. The first is a general entry strand and the second is a strand that focuses on International Development. While the required mix of modules varies across the two, the structure and timing of both is the same and both lead to an M.Sc. (Econ) qualification.
