The Master's Program in the Economics Department is administered independently of the Ph.D. Program. The Co-Directors of the Master's Program are Professor Gunseli Berik (email@example.com) and Professor Richard Fowles (firstname.lastname@example.org) who also comprise the Master's Admission Committee.
The Master's of Science (MS) degree in Economics is oriented toward the preparation of professional economists who work in the public or private sector and also for students who may be considering further graduate work in economics or related fields.

The program is oriented toward a broad, general training in economics which includes theory and applied courses. Areas of specialization include public finance, natural resource and environmental economics, economic history, quantitative analysis in economics, industrial organization, monetary economics, international trade, development theory, poverty, feminist economics, labor economics and others.
