Economics/Career in economics


Hey, am louis studying archaeology in nigeria, i would like to know how feasible for me it would be to pursue an msc in economics,and i offered economics as a subject in high school

There is a bit of overlap between archaeology and economics when you start looking at the history of trade, the origins of money, the development of specialization of labor during the bronze age, and other such topics.  A very good book on this is called Guns, Germs, and Steel (

That being said, if you haven't taken any economics courses except in high school, going directly into a masters program will be very difficult.  If you are good at math, learn fast, and work hard, though, it's not impossible.
