The Department of Economics provides three Master’s tracks: a Thesis Option for those intending to later pursue a Ph.D. in Economics, and two Non-Thesis tracks, a traditional flexible option and an applied economics option. The Ph.D. Preparation Option is designed primarily for students who intend to pursue a Ph.D. in Economics. This program provides excellent preparation for entry into a Ph.D. program. The second option is the flexible non-thesis program enabling a degree candidate greater flexibility in designing a program to fit one’s interest. A third track, also non-thesis, is the Applied Economic Analysis or “number crunching” option designed to prepare graduates to manage and analyze data sets.
