Students will study both economics and computer science coursework in depth, and must pass a final exam administered by their committees covering a portfolio of learning and research activities carried out during their master’s studies.

The MSEC program is the outcome of exciting developments across the two fields:

  • Computer science is becoming increasingly important for economists addressing complex questions on large repositories of data;
  • The explosion of computer uses in all areas of life has made it necessary for computer scientists to understand the economics of computing systems; and,
  • Computer scientists may now also analyze informational and financial transactions between people, businesses, governments, and electronic agents in economic terms.

The program requires 30 credits in computer science and economics. We expect that students will take four semesters to complete all the requirements.

Of these 30 credit hours:

  • At least 12 credits must be graded graduate computer science (COMPSCI) courses numbered 500 or higher
  • At least 12 credits must be core economics (ECON) master’s courses
Students seeking to do graduate work at Duke University for degree purposes must hold a U.S. bachelor’s degree or the equivalent of a U.S. bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution.Required documents and information:TranscriptsLetters of recommendationStatement of purposeGRE scoresGPA English Language Requirements IELTS band: 7 TOEFL paper-based test score : 577 TOEFL iBT® test: 90
