Masters of Science in Economics

Georgetown University is pleased to announce that the Department of Economics has launched a two-year Masters of Science (M.S.) Degree Program in Economics starting in the Fall of 2017. The M.S. in Economics is an innovative two-year program, recognized as a STEM degree, emphasizing frontier training in econometrics and quantitative economics.

The distinguishing features of the program, relative to the Masters in Applied Economics program, are: (1) the more extensive training in economics permitted by the degree requirement of 45 credits rather than 30 credits, and (2) the specifically required 15 credits of coursework in intensively quantitative courses. 

The program is structured such that a full-time student, with the necessary preparatory background, can complete the course of study in two academic years by taking the appropriate courses during the four terms.
