Program Overview

The Master’s in Applied Economics Program is 30 credit hours and lasts one academic year, from FSU’s fall semester (August) through the end of the 12 week summer term (July).  Course work in the fall and spring prepares students to devote most of their summer term to the Applied Master’s Project.  The Applied Master’s Project is a simulated consulting project that students complete in teams and tackle from start to finish alongside their faculty senior partner.  While there are multiple electives available, most students take an internship for credit in the spring.
