It reflects a new approach to teaching economics that focuses on real-world problems and integrates a wide range of different perspectives.
Many of the most serious environmental and social problems that we face can be traced to root causes in our economic system.
On this Ecological Economics degree from University of Leeds , you'll develop an understanding of how economic activity gives rise to environmental and social problems, and be introduced to the main tools to tackle them.
You can combine modules that help you build strong conceptual foundations in ecological and environmental economics, with specialist modules in heterodox economics and sustainability.
The course is ideal if you have an interest in economic issues with a focus on their social and environmental consequences, but you don't need to have completed a previous degree in economics.
There is an increasing demand for professionals with an interdisciplinary understanding of economics as it applies to real-world environmental and social problems.
You will learn the skills to pursue a successful career in government, business, or in a non-governmental organisation. Many of our graduates also pursue a research career and continue on to a PhD.
This Masters is ideal if you are looking to build upon a previous degree in the social or natural sciences, by developing an understanding of economics. It is designed to equip you with both a conceptual and applied understanding of critical issues in economics and sustainability.
