Applicants to the M.A. in Applied Economics program must have completed the following prerequisite courses:

  • 1 semester of calculus
  • 1 semester of statistics
  • 1 introductory-level course in economics (either microeconomics or macroeconomics)

Intermediate-level microeconomics and macroeconomics courses are recommended but not required. Economics is a highly quantitative discipline; therefore additional coursework in mathematics, statistics, or other quantitative subjects may further strengthen your application. An undergraduate degree in Economics is not required for admission.
