PhD in Economics The Department of Economics of SOAS has become one of the most outstanding sites for undertaking a research degree: The Department offers unique research training opportunities both through its dedicated research student seminar series and the wide-ranging set of courses taught its MSc programmes. These range from economic theory, to political economy of development and are oriented around a range of theoretical, to political economy of development and are oriented around a range of theoretical, empirical and policy issues. Its special subject options provide the highest level of expertise on a large number of topics. First year research students benefit from a programme of research student training in political economy, methods and methodologies, different schools of thought, and receive formal training sessions on how to do fieldwork. The training needs of each research students are individually assessed and provided for though a combination of generally available courses and individual tuition. Departmental staff have rich experience in supervising research degree students, matched by their success in bringing students' theses to timely completion. Whilst the Department has a strong commitment to early completion of theses, it also considers it has a responsibility to see that all of its research students obtain a broader training than in their narrowly-defined topic and that they gain skills in theoretical, empirical and policy analysis, in the writing and communication of research results, and in evaluating the work of others. Research students are expected to form part of the academic community of the Department, participating as appropriate in collaborative research with members of staff. SOAS offers unique opportunities for interdisciplinary and regional research, and the scope to learn or improve a language where appropriate. The Departmental Empirical Support Committee (DESC) offers targeted advice to individual students undertaking empirical work. There are a number of routes to obtaining a research degree from the Department of Economics MPhil/PhD in Economics This involves Department-specific research training and supervision, usually by a member of the Department of otherwise appropriate supervisor from another Department. MPhil/PhD in Development Economics. This involves Department-specific research training and supervision usually by a member of the Department of otherwise appropriate supervisor from another Department. The PhD in Development Economics is attached to the Doctoral Training Partnership and is eligible for ESRC funding: Scholarships and Bursaries. MPhil/PhD in International Development. The International Development Pathway is shared with the SOAS Department of Development Studies and other Bloomsbury Colleges. The ID pathway is also eligible for award of ESRC Grants through the UBEL Doctoral Training Partnership: Scholarships and Bursaries. As indicated, it is also possible to be PhD students in the Department of Economics on one or other of these three programes but to be supervised by a member of staff from another Department. By the same token, it is possible for a PhD student from another, Department to be supervised by a member of the Department of Economics. In these cases of cross-Departmental supervision, by virtue of more appropriate expertise in another Department, both Departments must agree to the arrangement and make provision for it (especially supervision in a department other that that responsible for training and administering student progress). Staff Research All full-time, permanent members of academic staff are active researchers and can serve as supervisors. The Department as a whole is especially keen to supervise research students across its staff’s areas of specialisation in political economy, development and area studies, but will also accept students across other topics, including mainstream approaches, where it has an interest and expertise. Please see the Economics Staff pages for a list of staff and their research interests. For the sorts of topics covered by research students, please see Research Student web pages.
