A MS in Applied Economics can open new and exciting career opportunities, give you skills and training valued by employers in both the private and public sector, and could even be an important first step for students thinking about pursuing a PhD.
The focus of the Applied Economics AMP degree is on applied economics, policy, and quantitative analysis of natural resources management, environmental policy, sustainable development, agricultural markets, and related areas. Our students develop strong economic skills and analytical methods – such as econometric and spatial analytic tools – essential for applying their expertise to real-world concerns and issues. Coursework centers on microeconomics and science-based policy analysis, drawing on courses both within the program and from other University departments and colleges.
