About this course
The Department of Economics offers three tracks that lead to the M.S. degree in Economics:
- General Economics Track is designed to provide tools for in-depth analysis of economics in the general setting of economics.
- Financial Economics Track aims to blend the core of economics with the essence of finance to enable students to take full advantage of the integration of the two disciplines.
- International Economics Track gears the economics program to an international dimension of business in an environment of globalization.
Students must complete a minimum of 30 credits to earn the M.S. degree. The M.S. in Economics has two options: (i) a thesis option requiring 30 credit hours, with a minimum of 24 credit hours of graduate course work and completion of the 6 credit thesis, and (ii) a non-thesis option requiring 30 credit hours of graduate course work. Note: Students must maintain a 3.00 cumulative GPA throughout their attendance in the M.S. Economics Program.
Students scoring slightly below minimum admission requirements are recommended to submit supplemental information. Supplemental applications, letters of recommendation, and/or portfolios should be submitted directly to the Graduate Program Advisor, Oksana Weaver. Applicants are becoming increasingly more dynamic and competitive, and the Department of Economics strongly encourages applicants to schedule an interview with the Program Advisor to demonstrate their promise within the program.
