UT Economics MA Program Brochure

On behalf of the Department of Economics at the University of Texas at Austin, we invite your students to apply to our one-year Master’s program. Our terminal M.A. Economics degree offers a 10-month, 10-course curriculum for students seeking rigorous training in economic theory and analytical methods; 18 and 24-month program tracks are also available.

 

The program is suitable for students with any of the following goals:

  • Obtaining the background in economics and mathematics required to gain admission to a high-quality economics PhD program
  • 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
  • Studying economics as a complementary field to another area of expertise (law, political science, public health, statistics, energy, etc.)

 

An undergraduate degree in Economics is not required for applicants. A strong quantitative background, along with some exposure to economics courses, is expected. Successful applicants will have taken multivariate calculus and preferably linear algebra.

 

Our application deadline is March 1, 2018, and classes begin in July 2018. Our website provides detailed program information including application instructions, course descriptions, syllabi, a profile of our current class, and student testimonials.

 

If you wish to learn more, please register for our virtual information session, Thursday, November 16, at 6pm CST, available online athttps://ma.eco.utexas.edu/virtual-information-session/. You are also encouraged to contact us directly at ma-econ@austin.utexas.eduif you have any questions about the program.

Ohio State Journal of Politics and International Affairs Call for Papers

The Ohio State University Journal of Politics & International Affairs (JPIA) is seeking qualified student submissions to be published in the Fall 2017 issue.

JPIA is a student-run journal that publishes papers written by undergraduate students in the areas of Political Science, International Studies, Economics, Public Affairs, Sociology, and related fields. Publication in the Journal is an opportunity to reach a wider audience outside of the class, as well as a learning experience through the editing and feedback process.

We seek to publish high quality papers that address current events and relevant subjects in the area of politics and international affairs. Ideal submissions are both informative and argumentative, with well-developed theses and strong mechanics.

The Journal typically publishes original research, theses, and essays written for upper-level courses although all majors and class ranks are invited.

If this opportunity is of interest to you, we highly encourage you to submit a paper for publication on our website at http://u.osu.edu/jpia/submit-manuscript/.

The deadline is October 13th, 2017, and submissions are reviewed on a rolling basis. We have recently updated our submission guidelines, which can be found here: http://u.osu.edu/jpia/submission-guidelines/, and ask you to carefully review them before submitting.
