Module content and teaching

Principal aims

The module aims to provide students with an opportunity to study a variety of topics drawn from the broad field of applied economics. Already the department offers a wide range of choice of modules but the width of the discipline implies that in any one year there will be some specialist fields of Economics which are not covered in the menu of core and optional modules. A complementary aim is to offer a module in which final year students can benefit from teaching delivered by leading researchers in the specialist field. Each year, the topics covered within the module are likely to change to reflect the heterogeneity of specialist research interests of teaching staff, the changing issues within the discipline and the changing topics taught elsewhere within the Economics degree programmes.

Principal learning outcomes

By the end of the module the student should be able to demonstrate an ability to apply key concepts in economics and econometrics to particular problems and contexts.Demonstrate the capacity to understand techniques of data analysis appropriate to various economic applications. Demonstrate an ability to interpret the results of such data analysis in context. Demonstrate an ability to critically assess applied analysis.

Timetabled teaching activities

20 hours (consisting of 3 topics each of 6 hours of lectures) over the AutumnTerm.
