Overview

The  MS in Economics at the University of Kentucky provides a strong foundation in microeconomics, macroeconomics, and econometrics, in addition to allowing students to pursue some electives in their fields of interest. 

The degree is often earned en passant to a Ph.D. in Economics or a related field; we do not typically admit students seeking a terminal master’s degree, although there may be exceptions (part-time students, international exchange students, or other special cases). If your ultimate goal is a Ph.D., you should apply directly to the Ph.D. program regardless of whether you already have a master’s degree.  

If you have any questions, contact Professor Josh Ederington, Director of Graduate Studies.
