Economics/Economic Analysis

The Kent School of Economics offers both taught and research postgraduate degrees, covering all aspects of the subject. All academic staff are active in research, and teaching and learning are informed by the school�s thriving research culture and strong cosmopolitan academic community. Our taught courses offer excellent training in core economics; the opportunity to specialise in areas such as finance, econometrics, development, agriculture and the environment; and advanced skills necessary for employment as an economist at a senior level. The small class numbers creates a good community for interaction between students and ensures students receive a good deal of individual attention in classes and workshops.

Entry requirements

A 1st degree (second class Honours or equivalent) and evidence of a strong quantitative background.

Course modules

Our teaching is informed by the research and scholarship of teaching staff, and is designed to motivate you to achieve your full potential. All students take a module in research methods, which provides practical skills and knowledge for research. Students have widely differing backgrounds in mathematics, so the first week of all our programmes is given over to compulsory intensive teaching in mathematics.

Assessment methods

Assessment is through a wide variety of methods including seminar presentations, extended essays, short projects, in-class tests, examinations, and the dissertation.
