The Economics (BA) offers two options:
The MS in Economics and Policy Analysis (MS-EPA) gives students a distinguished and marketable set of skills in economic theory as it applies to business and economic policy analysis. Students learn how to conduct statistical and econometric research grounded in sound economic models using data from multiple sources on different issues. In addition, students will be able to explain their results and policy recommendations not only to economists, but also to politicians, and the general public.
MS-EPA graduates can find employment in the private sector working for corporations in governmental relations departments, in federal and state governmental agencies, in trade associations or lobbying firms, or in the not-for-profit sector.
The TEACH Program combines a Liberal Arts and Social Sciences (LAS) undergraduate Economics major with a graduate level College of Education (COE) Master’s in Education Program. Students graduate with a BA in their disciplinary major and a MEd in Education with State of Illinois Secondary Social Science licensure.
The master’s year comprises teacher-preparation coursework that culminates with student teaching during Spring quarter. Upon graduation and the fulfilling of State of Illinois licensure requirements (which may require some additional course work in the student’s major and related fields), students are eligible to be licensed to teach Social Sciences at the 6th-12th grade levels.
A full description of the Program can be found on the College of Education website in the graduate course catalog. Students interested in the Program should consult with the designated TEACH Program advisor in their home department.
