Focusing on the changing world economy, the Economics graduate program offers exposure to a wide spectrum of theories and methodologies, including post-Keynesian, Marxian, and neo-Ricardian. The curriculum emphasizes the evolution of economic thought, financial markets and institutions, development and labor markets, social policy and regulations, and the economics of class, gender, race, and ethnicity. The MS is intended to be a terminal degree.
