M.S. Curriculum

Program Requirements

The Master of Science in Economics is designed as a 30-credit hour, one-year coursework-only program. However, it can be completed at the student's own pace. Students are required to complete four core courses (Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Econometrics I, and Econometrics II), as well as four Economics electives plus two additional elective courses. 

Note: Students can complete the program in one calendar year (fall, spring, and summer) or work at a more flexible pace to complete the program. There is a six-year Georgia Tech Graduate Studies time limit within which students are required to complete the program.
