Please read the following important information before referring to full details of course options found in the Programme Regulations.
The programme regulations available are for the current academic session and may be subject to change before the beginning of the next academic year. For more information about course availability in the next academic session, please contact the relevant academic department. The School reserves the right at all times to withdraw, suspend or alter particular courses and syllabuses, and to alter the level of fees. Courses are on occasion capped (limited to a maximum number of students) or subject to entry conditions requiring the approval of the course convenor. The School cannot guarantee that places on specific courses will be available.
You take basic courses in economic history and economics, combined with two options from any of the first year courses made available by other departments. The Internationalisation of Economic Growth focuses on the inter-relationships between the development of the international economy and the growth of national economies since the late nineteenth century. You have a choice of either Economics A which provides a foundation in economics, primarily to those without significant background in the subject or Economics B, an introductory course in microeconomics and macroeconomics for those expecting to take further courses in economics. You have the choice of an outside option from another LSE department and one international history option from an approved list.
Second and third years
You take one compulsory course. Theories and Evidence in Economic History examines theories and concepts used in economic history and provides an introduction to the methods used by economic historians to collect evidence and generate inference on relevant historical questions. In addition, you choose three courses in the second year from a wide range, at least two of which have to be in economic history. In the third year, you choose three courses in economic history and submit a 10,000 word project.
