The Department of Economics at the University of Texas at Austin now offers a one-year Master’s program. We have specially designed a terminal Master’s degree with a 10-month, 10-course curriculum for students seeking rigorous training in economic theory and analytical methods.
An undergraduate degree in Economics is not required for applicants. A strong quantitative background, along with some exposure to economics courses, is expected.
The program is suitable for students with any of the following goals: (i) Qualifying for jobs in the private or government sector that require greater expertise in economic, analytical, and statistical tools than provided by an undergraduate degree; (ii) Obtaining the background in economics and mathematics required to gain admission to a high-quality economics PhD program; or, (iii) Studying economics as a complementary field to another area of expertise (law, political science, public health, statistics, energy, etc.).
Additional information about the program is available at the website https://ma.eco.utexas.edu.
The first application deadline is February 15, 2013, and classes start July 15, 2013. We are looking forward to welcoming our first cohort of Master’s students in summer 2013!
