    As a final optional for my B.Sc. in Economics I must choose either Monetary or Public Economics.

    I was wondering which of these two may be more useful, both in terms of career and understanding real life

    Well, which module do you prefer? Are you more interested in monetary economics or public finance?

    Neither :p: but I must choose one of both, so I would like to use practicality (or usefulness in career) as a criterion.

    I'd say monetary economics for usefulness because it can be applied at a macro and micro level, and would probably be more quantitative so more highly regarded by employers...

    But I really don't know for sure...

    Monetary economics is generally applied at the macro level in undergrad courses, whereas public economics is usually micro-founded. So... draw your own conclusions. I think monetary economics would tell you more of the background to a regular reading of the FT than the other.

    In that case, I'd probably say monetary economics.
