The University of Warwick is one of the UK’s leading institutions, offering a superb intellectual environment to all its students and staff.
The Departments of Economics and Psychology at the University of Warwick announce these innovative new courses in the growing area of decision science and behavioural economics.
The courses emphasise both theoretical foundations and real-world application and are designed for those intending to work in business environments (e.g., retail and financial) and those concerned with public policy and its implementation.
The courses also provide an excellent foundation for those intending to undertake further postgraduate research.
We offer two variants: an Economics Track for those with first degrees in economics, and a Science Track for those with a first degree in a science or related subject.
Where do our students come from?
The typical candidate for the programme is one who already holds an Honours degree in Psychology, Economics, or a cognate discpline. Many of our students are international and come from countries all over the world including China, India, USA, Canada, Germany, Indonesia and Brazil. We welcome applications from all countries and there are good support services available for International Students
What do our students say about the course?
"The MSc is the best study experience I have ever had". Lifan Xie
"This course was extremely rewarding. It has changed the way I view and think about many things around me and motivated me to pursue a PhD in the field". Ali Osseiran (who is now studying for a PhD at Warwick Business School)
"I wanted to gain insight into psychology and cognition and understand how they can be used to improve economic theory and its policy applications. The course has helped me to understand the kind of questions that need to be asked by theorists as well as practitioners in order to do so". Laura Petschnig
