The Department of Economic History offers five MSc programmes lasting one year full-time or two years part-time, for those who have already studied economic history at first degree level, or for those who have studied a related discipline and whose interests have moved towards economic history. The wide range of courses, combined with the compulsory research dissertation, enables students to compile a programme to meet their particular requirements.
The following courses are taught in the department: MSc in Economic History, MSc in Economic History (Research), MSc in Quantitative Economic History, and MSc Political Economy of Late Development which is taught jointly with the Department of International Development (formerly DESTIN.)
The department also participates in the two-year full-time Erasmus Mundus MA in Global Studies: A European Perspective. Students can take either their first or second year at LSE following the syllabus for the MSc in Global History (Erasmus Mundus). Further information can be found here.
