MS Quickstart

QuickStart Master of Science in Economics

UW undergraduates can complete the M.S. degree in just one year after completing their B.S. degree if they apply to the QuickStart M.S. program in their junior year.

To be eligible, students must have (and maintain) a cumulative GPA of 3.200 or better as well as an Economics GPA of 3.200 or better. They are also required to take the GRE by the fall of their senior year and score above 300 combined on the verbal and quantitative sections combined.

Admission to the QuickStart program allows students to double-count 6 credits of courses taken as an undergraduate towards both the B.S. and M.S. degrees, and reserve an additional 6 credits of courses taken as an undergraduate towards the M.S. degree alone.

This then leaves only 18 credits to be taken after completion of the B.S. degree, which is feasible in just one year.
