This is an accelerated degree program which allows strong undergraduate economics majors to complete both the undergraduate degree in Economics (either BA or BSC) and the MS-EPA in 5 years. Students will apply to the program during their junior year and will take three graduate level courses during their senior year. The three courses are ECO 505 Advanced Microeconomics, ECO 515 Microeconomics of Market Organizations, and ECO 507 Research Methods for Policy Analysis I. These three courses will count towards completion of the BA in Economics or BSC in Economics and will also count towards completion of the MS-EPA. The undergraduate degree will be awarded at the completion of all undergraduate work while the MS-EPA will be awarded upon completion of the remaining graduate level work.
Applications for the Accelerated Bachelor-Master of Science in Economics and Policy Analysis are accepted during Spring quarter of each academic year.
