Master of Arts in Economics

The graduate curriculum in the Department of Economics at the University of San Francisco provides students the opportunity to study for a general Master of Arts degree in Economics with concentration in the fields of:

  • Financial Economics
  • International Economics
  • Telecommunications Economics.

The program consists of a Foundation program (waived for students who have completed equivalent course work in previous studies), an Economics Core, and the above areas of concentration. The program also provides for the completion of a research project in the concentration area and opportunities for internships and a master's thesis.

The graduate program draws on courses from the Department of Economics as well as on related courses taught in the School of Business and Management and the Departments of Computer Science and Mathematics. Students must complete 33 units of credit, not including foundation courses. A minimum of 24 of these 33 units must come from graduate Economics courses.
