Course info


UMSL Cyber Start Grant for Fall 2020 - Under this scheme, F1 international students who are unable to report to campus this fall due to COVID19 are able to pay a reduced rate of tuition. • This will only be for the Fall 2020 semester as the students should be on campus in Spring 2021 paying regular rates. • Any UMSL Global scholarship awarded for Fall 2020 would be deferred until Spring 2021. • Students must be enrolled in a degree program conducive to online learning.

The BS/MA ("2+3") program is an accelerated program that allows students to complete a BS and a MA in economics in five years. The program allows students to apply 12 of the MA credit hours towards the BS, reducing the overall required hours for the two degrees from the standard 150 (120 for the BS plus 30 for the MA) to 138 hours.

The MA in Economics requires 30 credit hours; at least 21 hours must be completed in residence. The following 3 courses (9 credit hours) are required:

  • Economics 5001 (Microeconomic Analysis)
  • Economics 5002 (Macroeconomic Analysis)
  • Economics 5100 (Econometric Theory and Methods)

In addition, 21 credit hours of electives must be completed. At most, six of these credit hours may be economics courses at the 4000 level (excluding Economics 4100, Economics 4105 and Economics 4150 which cannot be utilized as part of the MA degree); all other electives must be at the 5000 level or higher.

Of the 30 hours taken in the MA program, 12 of these hours (per the approval of the Graduate Director) will also count toward the undergraduate BS requirements. All other requirements for the BS degree remain in effect.

Awarding of Degrees

Both degrees (the BS and MA) will be awarded when all requirements for the entire program have been completed. In other words, the BS and MA degrees will be simultaneously awarded at the completion of study.

Students who officially withdraw from the BS/MA Dual Degree Program in Economics and who have successfully completed all of the requirements for the BS degree will be awarded the BS degree.
