Master's Program Economics
Areas of Specialization
The areas of specialization offered in the Master's in Economics program cover a broad range of topics and analytical approaches in economics. The courses are closely related to the research conducted at the WU Department of Economics.
Students in the Applied Track choose four areas of specialization, students in the Research Track choose three. Students may choose from among the eleven subjects below. If students decide to take a semester abroad, they can design their own area of specialization from the large number of field courses offered at international partner universities.
There is a corresponding research & policy seminar for each area of specialization. Students choose two seminars. There they work in small groups to develop their own research projects, and work closely with instructors.
