Course summary

Overview Gain the skills and knowledge you need to pursue a successful career in international economics or international relations. On this course, you'll explore international economics and international relations from an interdisciplinary perspective, increasing your understanding of international institutions and foreign policy, while developing the analytical skills of an economist. You’ll gain a strong foundation in your subjects through your core modules: Economic Concepts, Econometric Methods, International Relations Theory, and International Trade. You'll then have the opportunity to tailor your course to your interests and career goals by selecting optional modules from the range offered by the School of Economics. You don’t need to have studied economics before taking this course. About This Course MSc Economics and International Relations is part of our Applied Training Programme, which is designed to provide key skills in economics. It’s ideal if you’re a graduate without an economics background yet wish to develop the analytical skills of an economist. It's also suitable if you're an economics graduate and wish to develop specialist expertise in this area without committing to full research training. The compulsory component of the degree consists of taught modules in Economic Concepts, Econometric Methods, International Relations Theory, and International Trade. In addition to these, you'll choose options from a range of modules including International Finance, Multinational Firms and Environmental and Natural Resource Economics. Towards the end of your 12 months with us, you'll write a dissertation on an area of the discipline that supports your own interests and future goals. Throughout the dissertation process, you’ll have support and supervision from a member of the School of Economics. We offer specialised structural support to help you negotiate your Master’s course. This includes compulsory, intensive pre-sessional training before the start of teaching on your course modules. This training incorporates the techniques of calculus and matrix algebra and an introduction to the specialist econometric software that you'll use in your MSc programme.
