What will I learn?

The Master of Science in Economics is a STEM-designated program designed to provide a solid foundation in economic theory, quantitative methods, and policy. It prepares students for multi-industry career opportunities or can be used as a stepping stone to a PhD program.

Northeastern’s Master of Science in Economics is a STEM-designated program, focused on both applied economic analysis and policy. The program is designed for students looking to enter the workforce in a range of fields, or as a stepping stone to a PhD program.

With eight required classes (four core classes and four electives), the Master of Economics program allows you to tailor your degree to your professional goals and economic interests. Core courses provide a solid foundation in economic theory and quantitative methods, while electives provide students with the opportunity to apply economic analysis to particular policy areas. A variety of tracks and specializations are available and make it simple to tailor the degree. Part business and part social science, our Master of Science in Economics prepares graduates for a range of careers in research and development, government, finance, healthcare, and more.

Paid work as a practicing economist for three to six months may be included in the degree program as part of an optional co-op experience for qualified students.

EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING

The Department of Economics offers a graduate cooperative education option in its Master of Science in Economics program. This exciting program option allows qualified students to enhance their practice-oriented graduate education in economics with actual work experience. Please note that this is paid work and not an unpaid internship. Students who meet the following academic criteria are eligible to apply for participation in this program: Completion of the four core courses; Completion of two semesters of coursework; A minimum grade point average of 3.500.

Following a rigorous internal interview process, successful applicants are recommended to, and interview with, prospective employers. The final decision on hiring is made by the employer. The co-op experience typically begins after the spring semester has ended, or when the position is secured, if later, and continues until the end of the fall semester. The student then returns and finishes remaining academic requirements during the following semester(s).
