PCC ID: 18049
Name: PCC Proposal to Establish a Master of Science in Applied Economics
Proposed: 11/30/2018
Sponsor: PCC Committee
Proposal: This proposal is to convert the Master of Professional Studies in Applied Economics to a Master of Science in Applied Economics, with the CIP designation of 45.0603, "Econometrics and Quantitative Economics". The description of this CIP code is "A program that focuses on the systematic study of mathematical and statistical analysis of economic phenomena and problems. Includes instruction in economic statistics, optimization theory, cost/benefit analysis, price theory, economic modeling, and economic forecasting and evaluation." The actual program curriculum is not changing, since the curriculum is already well-matched to this description. The program will also continue to be administered through the Office of Extended Studies. A proposal to MHEC is required in order to create the new standalone degree program.
