The Department has two master’s degree programs, one in Economics and the other in Accounting. Graduate Students are actively engaged in the research and teaching missions of the department. Both programs equip students with analytic tools that can be directly applied to business and public policy. The PhD program in economics is based at the City University Graduate Center. Under special circumstances, advanced students in the MA program may take up to 12 credits and transfer them to Hunter towards their MA.
Because our programs integrate theory, quantitative methods, and practical applications, Hunter MA and MS graduates regularly move into interesting, well-paid positions in business, government, and international organizations. They are also prepared to enter PhD programs at top-ranking universities. In addition, Accounting graduates are qualified to take the CPA examination in New York State.
