Economics Graduate Programs
The Graduate Program in Economics at Bowling Green State University includes at least 30 hours of course work. There are certain general and coursework prerequisites that should be met for admission. Students with a strong background usually meet all these prerequisites and therefore can complete the program in one calendar year, while other students who have met the coursework requirements partially will take 3 or 4 semesters. In general students must pass two comprehensive exams, one on micro and macro theory, and the other on economic policy. If a student writes a thesis, only the comprehensive exam on theory is required.
The required courses of the program are (see specific course descriptions):
There is no strict application deadline for our program. However, to receive full consideration for a graduate assistantship, you should have all relevant materials (application for admission, test scores, transcripts, recommendation letters, and assistantship application) to us by March 1st.
