The PlusOne Program in Economics provides the opportunity for Northeastern’s undergraduate majors to complete both the undergraduate degree program (B.S. or B.A.) and the professional master’s program (M.S.) in economics in less time than if the programs were completed sequentially.
Students not enrolled in this program earning a bachelor’s and then a master’s degree from NU would need to earn a total of 160 semester hours (128 SH for the B.A. or B.S. and 32 SH for the M.S.). However, in the combined program students take 16 semester hours of graduate core courses in their senior undergraduate year that count towards both degrees, thereby reducing the total number of semester hours required for the two degrees to 144.
Undergraduate students may apply to the program as early as the end of their sophomore year or the beginning of their junior year. Students must demonstrate a strong quantitative background.
