The PlusOne accelerated Master’s 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.
To earn the M.S. degree through the Plus One Accelerated MS Program in Economics, the students need to take 8 graduate level courses, the first 4 of which is taken as an undergraduate. The 4 graduate courses taken as undergraduate can count towards economics electives or general electives toward the B.S. or B.A. degrees.
Upon completion of the bachelor’s degree requirements and earning their B.S. or B.A. degree, students are then considered graduate students. As a graduate student, the remaining 4 graduate level courses need to be completed to earn the M.S. degree.
