This degree will give you greater understanding both of particular areas such as public economics, international trade or economic development, and of the broader behavior of economies. While much of the subject is settled territory one of the excitements of economics is that it remains work in progress, as the recent international economic crisis makes clear. My major interest is in public economics and in particular the economics of the welfare state, including pensions, the finance of health care, higher education finance, and poverty relief. The degree is an excellent foundation not only for employment as an economist in industry, finance, government or international organizations, but also for a range of other careers where these skills are valued.
