University of York
Philosophy, Politics and Economics (Economics and Development)
This course explores both the economic and political dimensions of international development - differentiating it from MSc programmes in development economics - as well as the links between social choice and development economics.
The MA is open to those with a good 1st degree (i.e. an upper 2nd or equivalent) in any subject. Students with no prior knowledge of economics at undergraduate level are usually required to attend the economics summer session.
Core Module includes: development economics; the PPE of social choice; research skills for PPE, including applied microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics; dissertation. Students take modules from economics, including applied microeconomics; macroeconomics and econometrics. Students also take taught modules from a wide range of options by the politics and economics departments.
Unseen examination papers or essays, exams and a dissertation.
A range of scholarships and studentships are available at postgraduate level. Some scholarships are funded by the University (such as the York Master's Opportunity Scholarship) and some are funded by Research Councils, alumni, businesses and charities. Please check with the provider for details.
