Welcome to UNO's Economics Graduate Program!
New Economics graduate students will be admitted only to the Master of Science in Economics Program (non-thesis option).
After completing nine (9) hours of graduate coursework, a student may submit a written request to the Economics Graduate Program Committee (GPC) to transfer from the MS program to the Master of Arts in Economics Program (thesis option).
- The student’s request should state the field of economics in which he/she is interested in writing a thesis and the thesis topic.
- The student should attach an unofficial graduate transcript, a writing sample, and any other relevant information to the request.
The GPC, based on its evaluation of the student’s potential to complete a quality master’s thesis, will approve or deny this request. If the GPC denies the student’s request to transfer to the MA program, the student may submit a second written request to transfer to the MA program with supporting material to the GPC after he/she has completed 18 credit hours of coursework in the MS in Economics Program.
