A holistic grounding in economics, exposure to cutting-edge transdisciplinary research, and commitment to practice, problem solving, and policy shaping are the hallmarks of the MA in Economics.
The MA in Economics takes you from the historical underpinnings of the field to its most current advances, including neuroeconomics. The Department of Economic Sciences promotes practice-based scholarship that embraces the scientific method to better understand how people make decisions. You’ll analyze contemporary economics through the lenses of marketing and human variability, collaborating with top scholars impacting the field today. Our MA in Economics prepares you to shape policy and advance individual and social well-being in a variety of public- and private-sector careers. Alumni include chaired professors, finance ministers, CEOs, and more.
- You will find opportunities for practical application through internships, research projects, and our Southern California location.
- Our graduates work in top governmental agencies, such as the IMF, and in prominent private-sector firms, Fortune 500 companies, and more.
- Join Omicron Delta Epsilon (ODE), the International Honor Society for Economics, to enhance your academic career.
- You can pursue an MA in Economics in conjunction with another degree program at CGU, such as a PhD in Psychology. You earn a diploma for each degree and “double count” some units from one program to the other to decrease your required total units.
