Program Description

M.A. in Economics

Youngstown State University (YSU)

The department offers an M.A. in Economics and an M.A. in Financial Economics. Both programs are primarily designed for students who intend to seek employment after the completion of the degree. However, if supplemented by upper level courses in mathematics, the programs can also help prepare students for doctoral programs.

M.A. in Economics

The M.A. in Economics program is designed to provide students with a background in applied economics which leads to professional employment in business, government, or education. Special emphasis is placed on the use of data analysis to investigate public policy issues and business decisions. A well prepared student may complete the MA degree in a single academic year by taking an additional course each semester and writing a thesis during the summer.

For the M.A. in economics students must complete 30 semester hours of graduate credit with a grade-point average of 3.0 or higher. The requirements for the degree include the following core courses plus three electives (3 s.h.). A thesis (6 s.h.) may be substituted for the research seminar and one of the three semester hour electives.
