BA/MAE Applied Economics Program

The Mills College Accelerated Degree Program allows majors in economics and other fields to earn both a BA and an MAE. The program is designed to be completed with one additional year of study after completion of the bachelor’s degree. Non-Mills students and recent Mills alumni may apply to this program as well. Find more information about the application and deadlines as well as the online application.

Economics majors should declare their intention to enter the BA/MAE Program in their junior year to ensure that they have time to complete the following foundation courses. Students in any other major should consult an economics advisor in their junior year to discuss a course plan.
