Accelerated master’s degree programs are designed for Mason’s highly qualified and highly motivated undergraduates.
Students admitted to an accelerated master’s degree program have the opportunity to complete both degrees in less time and at a reduced cost.
Highly qualified undergraduates may be admitted to the bachelor's/accelerated master's program and obtain a BA/BS in a chosen major and an MA in Economics in an accelerated time-frame.
The department also grants recognition fellowship awards for exceptional MA applicants. Accelerated Master’s students are eligible to apply for this funding. Applications for the Economics MA Fellowship may be submitted in the final undergraduate semester, for disbursement after the transition to the MA program. Learn more about these awards on the MA Economics webpage.
