Our Master’s of Arts (MA) in Economics program from The University of Maine  is well-suited for students who want to prepare for a career in economics where additional advanced econometrics training is not as strong of a requirement and/or students want additional freedom for more electives.


Graduates excel in public and private sector positions requiring advanced analytical skills, knowledge of economic systems and methods, and experience conducting economic analyses of policy issues. 


Many students combine the Economics program from The University of Maine with an internship with a government agency or private business, which has the potential to lead to a job after graduation. Check out a sample schedule for this program here.
