Program Details

To paraphrase distinguished economist David Colander, economics is the interconnectedness of the political and sociological dimensions of a problem. Through observation and empirical exploration come informed answers. In other words, economics is not always a precise science. As an SNHU Master’s in Applied Economics candidate, you will acquire both the interpretive and scientific skills needed to become an expert decision-maker and thought leader in your chosen profession.
