MA in Economics
The department of economics presents a curriculum leading to the Master of Arts (MA) degree. Courses of study allow emphasis in one of three tracks:
- economic analysis,
- financial economics or
- international economics.
All three seek to provide students with analytical skills useful in decision making and a broader understanding of the overall economic environment. Options provide as much flexibility as is compatible with the student’s background and career interests.
The economic analysis sub-specialty is particularly suitable for students who wish to continue their studies in economics at the doctoral level. Financial economics includes coursework in financial management and areas related to money and capital markets, monetary policy, and financial and monetary institutions. It is particularly suited to those seeking employment in the financial sector. International economics is geared to those with an interest in the international economy, both from a business and policy perspective.
