An economics degree can provide students with a variety of career paths ranging from public policy to international finance to banking. The Economics Department offers a 33-credit master of arts degree in economics with two options for specialization: economic analysis or global business and finance. Option one is more flexible and allows students to explore different areas of economics including health economics, government finance, evolution of modern economic thought, and international trade. Option two is more focused and is expressly for students with an interest in global business and finance. It includes courses in global finance and management, international economics and finance, bargaining and conflict resolution, global business environment, and international human resource management. Applicants who wish to specialize in global finance and management must have undergraduate courses in macroeconomics, microeconomics, statistics, and calculus.
