The mission of the Master's program in the Department of Economics is to provide our students rigorous training in economic theory and econometric analysis which will help develop skills required in the investigation of economic problems in a wide variety of settings, both microeconomic and macroeconomic in nature. Upon completion of the program students will be prepared for professional careers in business, banking, financial services, government, consulting, and not-for-profit organizations, as well as for further graduate studies.
The Masters' degree program requires the successful candidate to complete 30 graduate credit hours in economics. A full-time graduate student that begins the program in the fall semester (August) will complete his/her degree at the end of the fall semester the following year (December). More on the Masters' degree curriculum is available here.
