About Economics at University of Exeter Business School, University of Exeter

A master’s degree in Economics from the University of Exeter marks you out as a self-motivated, individual student, with a range of specialisations as well as a broad base of knowledge. For some of the advantages of choosing Exeter, see Economics at Exeter.

This diverse programme builds on your undergraduate knowledge and offers you the chance to use your skills to produce an individual piece of Economic research. Optional modules play a significant part in the course, so you can tailor your qualification to your own needs. You learn through a combination of lectures, tutorials and student-led seminars.

Studied full-time over 12 months, you learn through a combination of lectures, tutorials and student-led seminars. A central objective of the programme is to provide you with insight into the latest thinking in economics. To achieve this, you attend a series of research seminars in the summer, during which you can discuss and present current research papers. You can also participate in the Departmental Seminars, which attract external academics and provide you with the opportunity to gain insight into the latest thinking in economics.

You study seven modules over semesters one and two, and use the third semester to complete a dissertation. There are four compulsory modules: Macroeconomics[comma], Microeconomics, Optimisation Techniques for Economists and Quantitative and Research Techniques. You can choose three options from a very wide range of modules, of which one must be an advanced microeconomics option, another an advanced macroeconomics option and the third can be any suitable module from any department at the University, provided it satisfies timetabling restrictions.

The second semester also includes a seminar where, as part of a group, your read and analyse an important academic paper in depth, and present it to the other students.

You proceed to a dissertation that is completed over the last 3 months of the MSc programme. This involves producing a piece of independent research under the supervision of a member of staff that whose research is related to your interests. The dissertation is supported by a dissertation workshop that provides guidance on how to develop a research project.

We strike a good balance between formal and informal teaching and like to get to know you as an individual so we can help you get the most out of the course. The aim is to give you first-hand knowledge of how the different branches of Economics interconnect. To this end we have established a weekly series of informal, student-led seminars during which you can discuss current papers, in order to keep you up to date with developments in the field, and put research in context.
