An Innovative Program

The Master of Science program emphasizes theoretical and empirical aspects of economic policy analysis through specialization in one of five Levy Institute research areas: Macroeconomic Theory, Policy, and Modeling; Monetary Policy and Financial Structure; Distribution of Income, Wealth, and Well-being; Gender Equality and Time Poverty; and Employment and Labor Markets.

The Levy M.S. program draws on the expertise of an extensive network of scholars at the Levy Economics Institute, an independent, nonprofit think tank with more than 25 years' experience in economic theory and public policy research. During the two-year M.S. program, students are required to participate in a graduate research practicum carried out by Levy Institute scholars and faculty. Undergraduates in economics or related fields have an opportunity, through a 3+2 program, to earn both a B.A. and the M.S. in five years.
