As the world becomes more complex and ever more digitised, the skills that allow you to separate fact from fiction, to pick out and interpret the right information in the right way, are becoming more valuable. Our Economics MSc gives you those skills. The course focuses on current economic thinking, providing the technical tools for understanding and developing microeconomic and macroeconomic models. You will also build a thorough knowledge of econometric techniques. You can focus on your interests and career goals by choosing from a range of specialist optional modules alongside your advanced-level core areas of economics. Our teaching is informed by our world-leading research. Theoretical knowledge is supported with hands-on training in the use, presentation and interpretation of economic data, which includes exploring a variety of advanced econometric software packages. With an advanced economics degree from the University of Nottingham, you will graduate with all the knowledge, practical skills and confidence you need to stand out to employers and progress as a professional economist or academic researcher.
In semester one, you will take modules in microeconomic theory, macroeconomic theory, econometric theory and economic data analysis. In semester two, you will choose two further required modules, which can be in microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics, and choose two optional modules from a wide choice. You will also start work on your dissertation by taking a module in economic research methodology. After completing your semester two modules, you will undertake a 15,000-word dissertation, with one-to-one support from an expert academic supervisor. This will demonstrate familiarity with a particular area of economic theory or policy, or the ability to apply a specific analytical technique.
Modules are assessed by a combination of exams and coursework at the end of the relevant semester.
