Overview/Contact Information (Graduate Studies)

The NUS Economics Department has more than 50 faculty members, whose research interests cover all the major areas of the discipline.   It is widely considered a world leading Economics Department and perhaps the best in Asia in terms of research.

The Department provides a variety of graduate programs in Economics that cater to different needs and interests.  While applicants should have a consistent record of academic achievement, knowledge of economics at the undergraduate level is not crucial for graduate studies.

The Department offers a taught masters course, the Master of Economics, which can be completed in one to one and a half years of study.    This course has two tracks: the career-oriented Applied Economics track and a more academically-oriented Quantitative Economics track.

The Master of Social Sciences (Research) course is typically two years long.  The course consists of a taught component and a research thesis component.

The Department also has a doctoral program that graduates almost ten students each year.

Subject to certain constraints, it is possible to arrange for part-time study of graduate courses.
