Course content

The M.A. in Economics program was established in the mid-1960s but has recently made changes to ensure that the program is focused on training students to conduct applied economic research and decision analysis using current methodologies. There is an emphasis on hands-on data analysis, making it possible for graduates to acquire the skills and knowledge for careers as consultants in private business and analysts for the government. The dedicated graduate faculty at MTSU have prepared highly qualified master’s-level economists who have gone on to continue their doctoral studies not only at MTSU but at numerous universities, including Chicago, Virginia, North Carolina State, and Auburn. Others have found employment in local banking, the Federal government, and the State of Tennessee.
The department offers a Master’s of Arts (M.A.) degree in Economics. The focus of MTSU's M.A. program in economics is on applied research and decision analysis. The M.A. program offers a general curriculum in economics covering a range of macroeconomic and microeconomic topics with a focus on hands-on data analysis. The program also offers a concentration in Financial Economics. Both of these tracks offer the intellectual foundation and technical skills required of economists and analysts in private companies and public agencies.
One of the department’s major goals is to promote graduates in the job market and to conduct mock interviews to help students have a professional and polished presence. Faculty are encouraging more and more graduate students to take advantage of this opportunity. Examples of career potentials include
