USF's IDEC Masters Program Now Recruiting

The University of San Francisco's Masters program in International and Development Economics is currently accepting applicants through early March. The program is fairly unique among econ masters programs for having 3 semesters of econometrics (I teach the first class in the sequence), and a mandatory field work portion during the summer between years one and two. It also offers a mix of elective classes in applied micro and international / macro that one would normally be hard pressed to find at the Master's level, including Alessandra Cassar's Experimental Economics class and my survey course in Environment and Development Economics. Graduates complete an original thesis under the advisory oversight of a faculty member, and recent topics have spanned the gamut from in-utero impacts of rainfall shocks in Bangladesh to determinants of gender-differentiated competition in China. If you or someone you know is interested in pursuing graduate education in development and has a bent towards quantitative methods, drop me an email and we can chat.
