About

Behavioural and Economic Science (Economics) MSc is designed for students with an Economics degree. University of Warwick's Economics department offers you a programme examining theoretical and real-world applications of decision science and behavioural economics.

Overview

This Behavioural and Economic Science (Economics) MSc course at the University of Warwick emphasises both theoretical foundations and real-world application in core and advanced areas of behavioural economics, and the cognitive science of judgement and decision making. 

It is for you if you intend to work in a business environment (e.g. consumer-led industries and the financial sector), and if you’re concerned with public policy and its implementation. It also provides an excellent foundation if you’re intending to undertake further postgraduate research. A 20,000-word written project report provides an opportunity to explore your own interests across these fields of study.

The Economics variant of the course is designed for students with a first degree in Economics. A Science track variant of the course is offered by the Department of Psychology and is available if you have a first degree in Science.

You will be automatically enrolled on a pre-sessional Mathematics and Statistics programme to equip you with the relevant methodological skills you need to succeed on the course.
