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:

  1. General Economics
  2. Econometrics and Data Analytics
  3. Financial Economics
  4. 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 program online.

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.

Florida Atlantic University is a dynamic and growing institution, and the Department of Economics is no exception. With 14 full-time faculty with Ph.D.’s from leading institutions, we offer small class sizes and a friendly academic environment within which to study and learn. Our goal is to prepare students for advancement in their current career or to pursue new career opportunities. Recent graduates have taken positions in major corporations, multinational consulting firms, the financial industry, and in the public sector.
