2 Introduction The Division of Economics provides a range of programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, the latter both taught and by research. Building on over 40 years of experience of delivering undergraduate and postgraduate training in economics, the Division is part of the Faculty of Social Sciences (FSS). Teaching and learning activities are delivered by research active staff whose areas of expertise in applied microeconomics, international economics and monetary economics are reflected in the range and content of modules available to students at Master level. In line with the University s mission of Making Knowledge Work the Division s programmes at all levels have a strong applied, real-world focus and seek to provide students with transferable as well as subject-specific skills. For more information see The MSc in Financial Economics equips you with the tools of economic reasoning, research and statistical analysis to investigate problems in financial economics. The programme provides you with an understanding of the network of financial institutions, their methods of operation, the imposition of regulations and how financial actions contribute to macroeconomic performance. You will have developed a high standard of critical, quantitative and communication skills that are highly valued by employers, alongside the specific abilities to apply advanced economic analysis to the operation of financial markets and institutions. The first semester will provide you with a grounding in advanced economic principles and tools of analysis. In semester two you will study modules in financial and applied areas. The final stage is the completion of a dissertation focusing on a topic you have chosen in agreement with your supervisor within financial economics and which draws on your previous taught modules. This is a major piece of independent study, however it is supported by an allocated specialist supervisor and preceded by study and research skills workshops for all students. At the University of Bradford, we emphasise the applied aspects of study to understand the world around us, with a focus on the impact of economic forces and the role of policy in shaping change. Those who graduate from the programme may go on to work in finance, in policy positions relating to the financial sector, or in more general economic policy or analysis roles in many types of organisation. Programme Aims The programme is intended to: Postgraduate Certificate A1 A2 A3 Develop your skills to enable you evaluate economic theory and policy. Develop your learning and communication skills.

4 The second semester covers advanced financial economics and the application of economic analysis to financial markets and institutions. You are also able to choose an option that fits with their particular interests and career aspirations. Within these options you will have the opportunity to apply some of the quantitative and theoretical tools introduced in semester 1. Completion of the taught modules at this stage of the programme will result in the award of a Postgraduate Diploma. The final element is the 60-credit dissertation, completed between May and September with support from an allocated supervisor from among the Economics Division academic staff. The dissertation draws on the concepts, tools and methods introduced in the taught modules in semester 1 and 2, and is expected to include substantial quantitative analysis. You will develop and select a research question under the guidance of departmental staff. A part-time route over two years of study is also offered. In the first year you will study Microeconomic Theory and Policy and Econometrics and Applied Research in semester 1 and in Semester 2 Financial Markets and Banking, which builds on these modules. In year 2, you will study Macroeconomic Theory and Policy in semester 1. In semester 2 Financial Economics and an option are taken and you will complete the dissertation stage.

5 Teaching and Assessment Strategies Teaching and learning activities are focused on lectures and group-based session for taught modules. During the dissertation writing stage (following semester 2), individual supervisors provide specialist guidance. Hence, as the programme progresses, the main learning method gradually becomes more individualised and student-centred. Group-based seminars will employ a variety of formats, providing you with the opportunity to experience hands-on computing, case study or data analysis, group work, class discussion and debate and presentations. The precise range for any particular student will depend on the precise range of options chosen. Please see the appendix for further details. To ensure the systematic development of knowledge of key subjects, modules are assessed by a variety of assessments in addition to formal examinations, including essays and projects. In seminars and workshops, you will engage in group work and presentations and will receive formative feedback from lecturers and peer-support from fellow students. During the dissertation phase, you will undertake independent research with supervisor support which include a number of one-to-one meetings to discuss progress and research plans.
