Program Description:

The Master of Arts in economics program is designed to provide students with a background in applied economics which would lead to professional employment in business, government, or education. Special emphasis is placed on the use of data analysis to investigate public policy issues and business decisions. Supplemented by upper-level courses in mathematics, the program can also help prepare students for doctoral study in economics or related fields. Through choosing the thesis option, a well-prepared student may complete the master’s degree in a single academic year by taking 12 semester hours in both the fall and the spring semesters and completing the thesis during the summer.
