Elective course work must include one to three additional courses in economics and may include up to two additional courses in a related discipline. Non-economic electives may include, but are not limited to, MBA courses in accounting, finance, or management information systems; courses in environmental studies; geographic information systems (GIS); or statistics. The graduate coordinator must approve all non-economics electives, and students must meet the prerequisites for these courses. Students interested in taking non-economics courses must get the prior approval of the graduate coordinator before enrolling in non-economics courses. Otherwise, such courses will not count toward their M.A. degree plan.
