I'm a government economist and have recently been looking for distance learning MSc Economics programmes to study while working. Unfortunately I could not find any distance learning courses that were purely in economics (feel free to let me know if you know of any), but I have found that SOAS offer an MSc Finance programme with a major in Economic Policy.
My question is whether this course is worth the time and investment if I want to develop my economics knowledge from my BSc to postgraduate level? From the modules, it appears to provide a good amount of economics but in the context of finance and international transactions, which I think I'm happy with.
You can see the modules here: https://www.soas.ac.uk/cefims/programmes/mscfinanceep/
I'd be very grateful for opinions from anyone who's applying or studying economics at postgraduate level.
