MSc Programmes in Economics

Economics at SOAS

Modern Economics cannot be understood in the context of today’s complex world without a global approach to the subject. Drawing on the knowledge of scholars and industry professionals from a wide range of backgrounds, SOAS University of London is ideally placed to provide the most rounded education in the field.

Our approach

In our economics programmes, emphasis is placed on introducing our students to heterodox approaches to economic analysis, including Marxist, feminist, Keynesian, and Schumpeterian perspectives, whilst ensuring our research deals with real-world issues and reflects real policy concerns. As such, students are encouraged to develop a deep understanding of particular countries and issues, based on a concrete analysis of history, institutions, and political economy.

Our programmes

Our programmes offer a wide range of technical and regional expertise, and are designed to provide a strong foundation in the core skills necessary for using economics in developing your career or undertaking PhD research.
