Economic History MSc Programmes






The Department of Economic History offers four 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 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.
