The Department of Economics offers one program: Master of Arts in Economics. Our program is designed to prepare students for careers in the public or private sectors and gives a solid foundation for students who will pursue a doctorate degree. We specialize in areas of research that align with our recognized expert faculty members, including transportation and development economics. 

Students are encouraged to participate and take advantage of our sponsored events and organizations, including the Economics Seminar Series, the Economics Graduate Association (EGA), the CSULB Student Research Competition, the Annual Economics Poster Competition, and the Long Beach Regional Economic Forum.
