MSc - Applied Economics and International Development.
The Kent School of Economics offers both taught and research postgraduate degrees, covering all aspects of the subject.
This MSc provides training in the application of economic principles to the problems of international development. It is designed for students with a good first degree in a sciences or social sciences subject, who would like to pursue a career in economics and international development. You must have some previous quantitative background, eg, a good mark in mathematics, from your pre-university school course. The MSc offers great flexibility and breadth of choice in module options in the areas of international finance, trade and development, environment and rural economies.
Our teaching is informed by the research and scholarship of teaching staff, and is aimed at motivating you to achieve your full potential. All MSc students take a module in Research Methods, which provides practical skills and knowledge for MSc-level research. Students have widely differing backgrounds in mathematics, so the first week of all our Master’s programmes is given over to compulsory intensive teaching in mathematics
