Outstanding undergraduate OSU students who have completed 105 of their required 180 credits toward their undergraduate degree with an overall GPA of 3.25 or better are eligible to apply to the Accelerated Master's Platform (AMP) in Applied Economics. In addition to students in the AFBM and EEP programs, undergraduate students seeking degrees in the College of Forestry, Agricultural Sciences, Liberal Arts, Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences, and the School of Public Health, will be the focus of the program.

Admission to the AMP will be competitive with students applying directly to the graduate program. The master’s program will notify applicants of admissions decisions during spring term. Accepted students will begin taking master’s level classes during the fall term of their senior year. With careful planning, students can then complete a master’s degree within 1 year after completing their bachelor’s degree.

Students from other degree programs must take 300-level economics courses to be eligible for the AMP. Applied Economics advisors will work with departments closely associated with the program to identify students who may be eligible for the AMP.
