EC220 and Ec221 are the core courses taken by second-year undergraduates specializing in economics many second and third year students on joint degrees with economics, and by many students enrolled in the MSc Economics (Preliminary Year) programme, as an elective by undergraduates specializing in subjects other than economics depending on regulations, and, with prior permission of the EC220 course lecturer, by students from other universities spending a year at LSE in the General Course programme. The course consists of 60 lectures and 20 small-group classes. During the MT, both EC220 and Ec221 are taught jointly; this term focuses on more applied material.  During LT, EC220 and Ec221 split into two lecture groups; that term focuses on more theoretical material.   Class work includes practical work on the computer with actual data sets as well as pencil and paper exercises.
