Welcome to UNO's Economics Graduate Program!
Our graduate program in economics is designed to provide a solid background in theory, quantitative methods, and other applied skills appropriate to the needs of economists involved in the analysis of domestic and international business and economic conditions, financial analysis, policy analysis, forecasting, simulation, and related work. In addition, the program prepares students for further graduate work in economics and related fields.
New economics graduate students will be admitted only to the Master of Science (MS) economics program (non-thesis option, 36 total credits). After completing nine (9) hours of coursework in the MS economics program, a student may transfer to the Master of Arts (MA) economics program (thesis option, 30 total credits) if certain conditions are met. Students interested in the thesis option are strongly encouraged to seek the advice of the economics graduate program advisor.
