The stackable Graduate Certificate of Economics is designed for students interested in specializing or expanding their understanding of economics by taking graduate-level courses without having to commit to a two-year master’s program.  It gives students the opportunity to deepen their knowledge, as well as explore special topics of interest such as urban economics, econometrics, health economics, international economics, development economics, environmental economics, gender economics, macroeconomics or finance.  Whether your goals are professional or personal we will work with you to build the most appropriate coursework plan.

Our departmental emphasis on mainstream and alternative economic theories, building out practical skillsets and applying knowledge to help analyze current events make this an excellent first step for anyone interested in boosting their credentials and expanding their professional opportunities.
