5 Year Program: BA in Economics, MA in Regional Economic and Social Development

Students who have maintained a 3.0 GPA may enroll in a 5 year program, which earns them a BA in Economics and a MA in Regional Economic and Social Development. Students who elect this option may count two of their 500 Level RESD courses towards fulfillment of their Economics BA requirement. These courses would count as upper division elective courses. Students electing this option are also automatically enrolled in the graduate school at UMass Lowell and need not take the GRE exams, provided they maintain a 3.0 GPA.
