      The MS in Economics provides a solid grounding in the history and contemporary development of political economic tools and, through education in the contemporary quantitative tools of analysis, extends this training to include a significant part of the PhD analytical core curriculum.

      Entering students work with an individual faculty advisor. This advisor, together with the departmental student advisor, introduces them to the curriculum as a whole and helps them to formulate the program that best suits their interests and needs. 

      This program is STEM-designated. Eligible F-1 students in this program can apply for an additional 24 months of Optional Practical Training at the end of their Post-Completion OPT.
