Economics courses are split into Undergraduate and Postgraduate. Brief details are listed below and further information can be obtained from the drop down menu at the bottom of the page.
The Department offers a wide range of options for further study, including honours degrees in both Economics and the more specialist pathway of Business Economics. Both of these can be studied as Single Honours degrees or as Joint Honours degrees in combination with other subjects. Our programme is designed to be flexible to allow you to match your interests and future career plans.
MSc in Applied Economics
The MSc in Applied Economics applies economic analysis to policy issues and business problems. It develops the analytical skills necessary for employment as a professional economist in the private and public sectors. The emphasis is on applying the tools and techniques of economics, rather than teaching economic theory as an end in itself.
MSc in Global Energy Management
The new MSc in Global Energy Management (GEM) is designed specifically to train the next generation of energy management professionals. Students will gain the in-depth knowledge of the entire global energy system along with the specialized analytical tools and techniques that they will need to become high performing energy professionals in a wide range of organizations.
Scottish Graduate Programme in Economics
The Department participates in a Scottish Postgraduate Economics Programme that offers a Doctoral programme and Master's degree in Economics. Eight Scottish universities cooperate in the Programme, giving students access to Scotland's leading economists and the facilities provided by these eight institutions.
Economics Postgraduate Research
Interested in a postgraduate research degree? The Department has around 25 teaching and research staff. Other economists, some seconded from the Department, work in the associated Fraser of Allander Institute, making the economics grouping at Strathclyde one of the largest in the UK. Each year, there are around 15 students registered for postgraduate research degrees in the Department.
