The course emphasises both theoretical foundations and real-world application in core and advanced areas of behavioural economics and the cognitive science of judgement and decision making.
The typical candidate for the programme is one who already holds an Honours degree in a quantitative subject including Psychology, Economics, Sociology, Mathematics, Engineering, and Physics. Previous experience of psychology, economics, or behavioural science is not necessary.
