Behavioural and Experimental Economics

MSc Experimental Economics is a specialist research-training course in a rapidly expanding field of enquiry in which there are many important areas of theoretical dispute between economists. Academics who teach this course include some world-leading experimental economists. If you choose to take this course you will benefit from the work undertaken at our Centre for Behavioural and Experimental Social Science, whose computerised laboratory is dedicated to teaching and research in experimental economics. The University is one of a very small number of economics departments in the UK equipped to carry out such work. You will also benefit from research on behavioural consumers conducted in the ESRC Research Centre for Competition Policy. This course is ideal for those who aim to gain employment as professional economists in government, financial institutions, business, commerce, industry, international agencies and other similar organisations. It is also suitable for planning to go on to study at PhD level.
