Graduate Pathway in Economics

Students who successfully complete an INTO Mason Graduate Pathway or Graduate Bridge Program in Economics are assured progression to a Mason graduate degree program upon submission of additional required application materials.

This transition from an INTO Mason Pathway program to a university degree program is called 'progression'.

Bridge Program: Students with select three-year undergraduate degrees can begin earning credits toward a master's degree while completing core undergraduate requirements.
