A maximum of three credits taken at another university may be granted toward the credit requirement for the master's degree. At least 27 credits must be completed at The New School for Social Research.
The three electives can be any courses offered by the Department of Economics or courses offered by other departments that are approved by the Economics faculty advisor.
