Ten courses are required to complete the Master of Science in Applied Economics.
Prerequisite Math requirement:
- Those entering with only a single Calculus course must first take 440.304 Mathematical Methods for Economists, a three undergraduate credit, full-length course, at half tuition. The course does not count toward the degree.
- For those required to take Math Methods, the course is treated academically as part of the Core. Thus, all rules applying to the Core apply to Math Methods.
- In order to waive our Math Methods for Economists course, evidence of Multivariable Calculus is required.
