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 programmes are taught in the department

The department also participates in the two-year full-time LSE-Leipzig Double Degree in Global Studies and Economic History. Students can take either their first year at Leipzig and their second at LSE following the syllabus for the MSc in Global Economic History.  Further information can be found here.
