Graduate School in Economics

The CSUN Tseng College of Extended Learning offers test preparation programs (course to prepare you to take the standardized tests required for graduate school admissions). More information is available on the Tseng web page:

CSUN does not offer a Masters in Economics. We do have a MBA (Masters in Business Administration) Program. For a Masters in Economics at a local California State University, check out Cal State Long Beach, Cal State Fullerton, or Cal State LA.

For advice on what courses to take at CSUN to prepare for a doctoral program in Economics, read the section entitled "Suggested Economics Electives to Focus Your Course of Study" under Focus Your Studies and Graduate School Preparation. If you are a CSUN student interested in attending graduate school in Economics, contact Dr. Dennis Halcoussis for more advice.
