About Economics at Queen's University Belfast

Do you have an interest in the world economy and in how economics can help us understand the world around us? Well trained economists are highly sought after in the labour market and are employed by consultancy firms, the government economic service, financial institutions, and other international organisations and businesses (even the tech giants). Do you want to combine an advanced understanding of core economics and the latest developments in economics with the opportunity to specialise in economic theory, applied economics, or economic history? Economics is about how people make choices in conditions of resource scarcity and the results of these choices for society. It's about understanding the world around us and our place in it. If you are interested in advanced study in economics that is 'post-crisis' in both structure and content, delivered at one of the UK's leading universities, then this degree is for you. The core modules develop your understanding of key economic concepts, ideas, tools and techniques, including the latest developments in micro, macro, applied econometric's, behavioural economics, the economics of labour markets and social policy and economic history. You can then specialise further in economic theory, applied economics (policy and institutions), or economic history. You will spend the summer combining your knowledge and skills to write a dissertation on a topic of your choice under personal supervision of a member of the Queen's faculty. On successful completion of this Masters you will have a deep understanding of the world economy past and present and the advanced analytical and quantitative skills that are so highly sought after by employers. Economics is ranked 7th in the UK for teaching satisfaction (Guardian University Guide 2020)
