Undergraduate required courses (30 or 31 credit hours):
Undergraduate electives (9 credit hours):
Three undergraduate economics courses and at least 2 of them must be at 4000-level.
Graduate required courses (18 credit hours):
- ECON 5073 - Microeconomics Theory (3 credits)
- ECON 5083 - Macroeconomics Theory (3 credits)
- ECON 5813 - Econometrics I (3 credits)
- ECON 5823 - Econometrics II (3 credits)
- ECON 6053/6054 - Seminar in Applied Economics (3 credits) 1
- ECON 6073 - Research Seminar (3 credits)
1 The "Seminar in Applied Economics" (ECON 6053, 6054) are 8-week 1.5 credit modules. After completing 3 credit hours of ECON 6053/6054 as part of the economics core, additional ECON 6053/6054 courses may be counted as electives.
Graduate electives (9 credit hours):
Any course numbered 5000 or higher with an ECON prefix.
Note: the mathematics courses that students take also fulfill some of CU Denver (up to 8 hours) and CLAS (up to 4 hours) graduation requirements.
Students need to take only three electives at the undergraduate level; the three electives taken at the graduate level are double counted in fulfilling both BA and MA graduation requirements. ECON 5803 (Graduate Mathematical Economics) is waived or can be counted as one graduate-level elective. The total dual credits are 12 hours.
Additional graduation requirements
All other grade and GPA requirements towards the BA and MA degrees (e.g., a C- or better is needed in each undergraduate-level required course and a B- or better is needed in each graduate-level required course). Students are expected to meet all course prerequisites.
To apply, students should submit a regular application to the MA ECON program here. Students who meet the admission requirements are not required to pay the application fee, submit GRE scores, letters of recommendation, or a personal statement. Students must contact the graduate advisor after their application is submitted to have this material waived (firstname.lastname@example.org).
