Bachelor in Economics-Master of International Affairs Joint Degree
The Joint-Degree Program between the Department of Economics and The Bush School of Government & Public Service allows undergraduate Economics students to enter the Master of International Affairs Program, with a focus in International Economics and Development, at the beginning of their fourth year at Texas A&M University. This program combines the teaching of analytical thinking skills and applications to better understand human behavior as it relates to international economic development along with skills in diplomacy, research, and development of a global perspective. Students will double-count 9 hours of Bush School courses toward the undergraduate major coursework area and up to 15 hours toward general electives in either the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree in Economics.
The joint-degree program encourages the exploration of economic principles and theory and preparation for graduate work through internship and studying abroad while focusing on the development of rational thought and critical thinking. At the completion of the joint degree, students are prepared for a wide variety of post-graduate opportunities including: employment in global commerce, government, government contracting, national security, and transfer pricing.
