Economics Postgraduate Degrees

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Modern economics cannot be understood in the context of today’s complex and more integrated world without a proper understanding of history, political economy and the various issues that proliferate in the developing world.

That is why SOAS is the superior choice for anyone seeking the most rounded education possible in the field.

At SOAS you will find a vibrant research culture that combines mathematics, statistical techniques and mainstream economic theory with some of the core heterodox approaches, including Marxism, feminism and Schumpeterian and behaviouralist perspectives.
