Master of Science in Economics (MSE)
The Master of Science (MS) degree in Economics offered by the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business is intended to prepare students for doctoral study in Economics or to pursue a career as an analyst in business or government.
Ten Courses, One Year
Students are required to take rigorous courses in mathematical economics, microeconomics, macroeconomics, and econometrics. Depending on a student's interests, the balance of his or her curriculum can be selected from a list of several elective courses. Nine academic courses are required, plus the thesis research course. That's ten courses, one year (or less), and one valuable degree.
Prepared for the Future
Our graduates in economics are well prepared to continue their studies at the doctoral level or to begin a career as an analyst. Graduates have continued their studies at institutions such as University of Washington, Florida State University, University of California at Irvine, Texas A&M, and George Mason University. Others have chosen to work at the Federal Reserve, the U.S. Department of State, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and private for-profit and non-profit companies.
