Considering an Economics Masters? Consider Kingston

Flattr this!

As you may know, I am now Head of the School of Eco­nom­ics, His­to­ry and Pol­i­tics at Kingston Uni­ver­si­ty Lon­don. I took on the posi­tion for two rea­sons: because Kingston was already a cen­tre for plu­ral­ist eco­nom­ics; and because as Head of School I could main­tain and strength­en its plu­ral­ist approach. I’d like you to con­sid­er join­ing me here, and if you plan on doing a Mas­ters in Eco­nom­ics in the 2015–16 aca­d­e­m­ic year, then now is the time to apply.

Kingston offers a range of Eco­nom­ics MA degrees from het­ero­dox, plu­ral­is­tic and applied per­spec­tives, full time and part time. Our degree units are:

There’s more infor­ma­tion  on each of the cours­es at this link:

Kingston isn’t the only Uni­ver­si­ty in the UK where you can get a plu­ral­ist edu­ca­tion in eco­nom­ics: there are also plu­ral­ist pro­grams offered at Green­wich Uni­ver­si­ty, SOAS, the Uni­ver­si­ty of the West of Eng­land in Bris­tol, and Leeds Uni­ver­si­ty. There are plu­ral­ist pro­grams in the USA too–at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Mis­souri Kansas City, the Uni­ver­si­ty of Mass­a­chu­setts Amherst, the New School for Social Research, Utah Uni­ver­si­ty.

By all means, check out the cours­es there too. The impor­tant thing, at this time of great change in eco­nom­ics, is to receive an edu­ca­tion that respects alter­na­tive approach­es to the main­stream, while also treat­ing the main­stream in detail. And if you’re not already a mem­ber, be sure to join a Rethink­ing Eco­nom­ics stu­dent group.

About Steve Keen

I am Professor of Economics and Head of Economics, History and Politics at Kingston University London, and a long time critic of conventional economic thought. As well as attacking mainstream thought in Debunking Economics, I am also developing an alternative dynamic approach to economic modelling. The key issue I am tackling here is the prospect for a debt-deflation on the back of the enormous private debts accumulated globally, and our very low rate of inflation.
