The MA Economic Policy programme from SOAS University of London can be attractive to graduate students from other disciplinary backgrounds wishing to further their understanding of economic policy issues and debates through systematic academic study.
Why is the SOAS MA Economic Policy unique?
Masters degree in Economics open to those WITHOUT a first degree in Economics. Replaces the need to take an additional Economics bridging degree, such as a Graduate Diploma in Economics.
A combination of economic theory and global policy application, taught in small classes (one of the best student-staff ratios in the UK – 11.3:1).
Develop and apply quantitative and qualitative research skills through a variety of inclusive teaching and learning methods, from team-based assessments to Pecha-Kucha presentations. See some recent work we have been doing around inclusive assessment at Advance HE.
First-class teaching in the heart of London with access to events and libraries across the University of London (see our latest Economics departments events).
