The Macro Master’s program offers a range of options to best fit a student’s academic and research background in addition to their future goals.  

Master of Science (Research)

Students can participate in research with a chosen faculty advisor in conjunction with their required coursework (8 courses).  These research efforts culminate in a publication or other approved Master’s thesis written by the student. Students are expected to complete the program in 1.5 to 2 years (3 or 4 academic terms).

Master of Science (Coursework)

Students will focus on coursework in their degree (10 courses) and elect to not participate in research.  Students may choose from previously approved course plans or create an individualized one tailored to their interests and goals. Students are expected to complete the program in 1.5 to 2 years (3 or 4 academic terms).
