Our course lets you address a range of topical policy questions through research. Using empirical methods and data analysis, you learn how to organise data to shed light on these questions, apply econometric techniques and design new policies. If you want to challenge the status quo and reconsider the foundations of society, this course is for you.
You question and challenge economic approaches to public policy analysis, evaluation, and implementation. You also receive a thorough introduction to all aspects of economics, including micro and macroeconomics, quantitative and mathematical research methods, and build on these classical economic principles to develop practical analytical skills.
You study a broad range of topics in applied economic policy and practice, including:
- Applied economics and policy
- Health economic policy
- Labour market reforms
- International environmental treaties
