Master of Arts: Economics

Contact Dr. Larry Blank

The Department of Economics, Applied Statistics & International Business (EASIB) and the Department of Agricultural Economics and Agricultural Business (AgEcon/AgBusiness) in the College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences (ACES) cooperate in offering graduate programs in economics and agricultural economics.

All students must successfully complete core courses in microeconomics, macroeconomics, and econometrics. Students in AgEcon must also complete a research component.

ACES provides AgEcon/AgBusiness Graduate Program information and contacts. The combined programs offer a graduate curriculum in both theoretical and applied economics and agricultural economics.

Graduate students are able to work one-on-one with more than 30 full-time faculty members with degrees from leading universities throughout the United States. The combined faculties offer expertise in all areas of economics, agricultural economics, resource economics, and agribusiness. The student’s program of study, beyond the basic requirements, is formulated by the student and a faculty advisory committee with reference to the student’s professional goals.

Graduate classes range in size from 10 to 15 students. The Graduate Student Organization selects students to serve on the Graduate Program Committee. The graduate faculty assists master’s graduates in finding professional opportunities in research, teaching, government, and business, as well as in securing admission to and financial support in top Ph.D. programs. The attention to master’s training plus the personal touch leads to a very strong professional program.

MA in Economics for Remote Students (Distance Ed Option): Beginning Fall 2020, we will offer an option for remote students to complete our MA in Economics with a Concentration in Public Utility Policy & Regulation by attending classes via the internet. For most courses, remote, distance education students attend class at the same time as in-class students. Please contact Dr. Larry Blank for more information: 575-642-6148.
