Summary

The Master of Arts in Economics is a degree in applied economic analysis and policy. The MA degree is designed to provide a solid foundation in economic theory and quantitative methods, while providing an opportunity for students to apply the tools of economic analysis to particular policy areas. The program is designed to serve the need for a terminal graduate degree for those who want to become professional economists, government officials, and economic consultants, and to lay the groundwork for students who wish to pursue the PhD degree.

This Master of Arts program is designed to serve the need for a terminal graduate degree for professional economists, government officials, and economic consultants, and to lay the groundwork for students who wish to pursue the PhD degree. Paid work as a practicing economist for three–six months may be included in the degree program of qualified students toward the end of their program. Approximately thirty students enter the program each year. The focus of the program is on application and practice. Development of presentation skills and ability to produce project-oriented writing assignments are essential to the program and are emphasized in the elective (application) courses. Even the core courses incorporate application of theory and/or methods. The ability to incorporate co-op (paid work for one semester) into the program enhances the practice orientation of the degree.
