Postgraduate study in economics is designed to prepare students to pursue careers as economists in academia, government and the private sector. This objective is met by developing the ability to think logically and creatively, to analyse economic data through the application of appropriate theory and quantitative techniques, and to present research in seminars and written dissertations.

The Honours and Coursework Master’s programmes in economics are planned as a two-year sequence, where students receive the Honours degree after the first year of study.

Classes are given on the Westville and Pietermaritzburg campuses.
