Master's in Economics
The Department of Economics offers a comprehensive Master of Science in Economics degree program. Students may choose one of the following tracks:
- General Economics
- Econometrics and Data Analytics
- Financial Economics
- International Economics
The General Economics track provides maximum flexibility in course selection, while the other three concentrations allow students to focus in an area of specialty.
The Master's in Economics program is designed to appeal to both full-time students
and the working professional. Most classes offered in the evening with a remote (online)
attendance option. With some limitations (e.g., certain non-economics business courses
are not offered online), it is possible to complete the entire Master’s in Economics
Our program is designed with flexibility in mind. One can complete the Master of Science in Economics degree in as little as 12 months with a full-time course load or spread the coursework over a longer period to fit one’s schedule. We also offer a combined undergraduate/master’s program for qualified FAU undergraduate students, which allows students to count up to three graduate economics courses toward both the bachelor’s and master’s degree requirements.

Our goal is to prepare students for advancement in their current career or to pursue new career opportunities.
