Applied Economics & Statistics

General Information

Degrees Offered


Graduates of the Master of Science (MS) in Applied Economics and Statistics fill an increasingly valuable niche in public and private organizations. Students in the MS program learn to apply economic theory, estimate econometric models, and use inferential statistics to analyze human behavior, business strategy, or government policy. The program's administrative home is the John E. Walker Department of Economics. Faculty from the Dept. of Economics, statisticians from the Dept. of Mathematical Sciences, and applied economists in the College of Agriculture, Forestry, and Life Sciences teach the required and most of the elective courses in the curriculum.

The faculty are devoted to helping graduate students achieve academic, intellectual, personal, and career goals. The faculty will endeavor to create a challenging environment of scholarship, creativity, and intellectual freedom. You will be encouraged to work closely with the faculty and to participate in academic activities as colleagues of the faculty.
