This degree program is an intensive three-semester course of study designed for those seeking rigorous training in economics supplemented by training in the related disciplines of politics, international relations, public health, and infrastructure and environment. The economics core of this program is identical to that required of students taking the MA in Economics. In addition, the MA in Global Development Economics (MA GDE) includes a set of economics elective courses that focus on various aspects of development issues and the global economy. Candidates for the MA GDE will also join students from the MA in Global Development Policy (MA GDP) program in taking courses in governance and political economy, international public health, infrastructure and environmental planning, and a capstone seminar. The program is intended for students interested in a career in the economic development of lower- and middle-income countries and in transition economies, including working as policy analysts and decision-makers in government, nonprofit institutions, international organizations, and the private sector.
