Anyone know of a good Masters program in economics?

I am talking about a masters program and not a combine masters PHd. jut the Masters.

Aren't you kind of young to be thinking of Masters? Anyway, I think the schools below offer a MA or MS in Economics. There are arranged in order of excellence.

Michigan-Ann Arbor
Johns Hopkins
UNC-Chapel Hill
Boston University
Maryland-College Park

I am pretty sure that Harvard, MIT, Princeton, Yale, Stanford, columbia and Cornell are PhD only.

But do your research, this is merely from recollection.

I believe Chicago, U.C. Berkeley, are Ph.D. only as well. Michicago Ann-Arbor offers a Masters of Arts in Applied Economics. Columbia offers a Masters of Arts in Quantitative Reasoning (or something to that extent.) There is no mention of a terminal M.A. degree at UCLA and Brown University, Johns Hopkins, and the University of Maryland mention that there is no separate application to the department outside of a Ph.D. program.

Duke, NYU, UNC-Chapel Hill, Boston University, and I'm sure a lot of other departments offer terminal M.A.'s in Ecomonics.

I believe NYU is the highest ranked Econ program to offer a terminal MA program. Other schools allow PhD students to leave after getting the MA.

Tulane has an accelerated 5 year BS/MA in economics program. Definitely check that out.

Combined programs are a different from terminal M.A. programs. I'm not sure the schools that offer those but several schools offer combined B.S. (or B.A.)/M.A. programs in economics as well as a variety of other subjects.

Northwestern also has a 4-year BA/MA program. They don't offer a separate MA program.

Im that for economics? If so that is very good.
