About

Explore the complexity of economic development with an approach that’s both analytically rigorous and problem and policy oriented with the Development Economics (Part Time) programme at the University of East Anglia.

Overview

On this MSc Development Economics (Part Time) at the University of East Anglia you’ll learn to apply rigorous economic analyses to real-world problems like poverty and underdevelopment to identify effective policies. Importantly, you’ll integrate methods, research findings and new insights from behavioural and experimental economics. While taught by specialised development economists, the MSc is housed in the multi/interdisciplinary School of International Development. This gives you the chance to take two taught modules from a choice taught by political scientists, anthropologists, specialists on natural resource, gender, and education – making this course a fascinating and rewarding choice.

You’ll be taught by a team of internationally respected development economists with a vast amount of experience in the field. Specifically, the use of experimental and behavioural economics puts this group in the forefront of innovative development research internationally – and you’ll benefit from their learnings.

The programme applies rigorous economic analyses to real-world problems, like poverty and underdevelopment, to identify effective policies. International development organisations and agencies (for example, theWorld Bank, IMF, DFID, Oxfam, Action Aid, WIDER) increasingly recognise the need for these skills and this programme provides a sound foundation in contemporary development economics.

Careers

A career in international development can take you in all kinds of directions such as international organisations, governmental and non-governmental organisations, local governments, private sector and PhD programmes.
