Faculty Teaching in the MS Program

 


The online Master of Science (MS) degree Program at Purdue University is identical in content and rigor to the standard MS degree, and thus the degree awarded does not distinguish the delivery method (on line or in class).  Below is an introduction to the Department of Economics's faculty members who teach in the MS online program and examples of courses that they teach.
