> Dear Director of Undergraduate Studies:
> Please share this email with interested students and members of your
> department's undergraduate advising staff.  A flyer is also attached
> for posting.
> On behalf of the Department of Economics at the University of Texas at
> Austin, I am writing to introduce you to our new one-year Master's
> program.  We have specially designed a terminal Master's degree with a
> 10-month, 10-course curriculum for students seeking rigorous training
> in economic theory and analytical methods.
> An undergraduate degree in Economics is not required for applicants.  A
> strong quantitative background, along with some exposure to economics
> courses, is expected.
> The program is suitable for students with any of the following goals:
> (i) Qualifying for jobs in the private or government sector that
> require greater expertise in economic, analytical, and statistical
> tools than provided by an undergraduate degree; (ii) Obtaining the
> background in economics and mathematics required to gain admission to a
> high-quality economics PhD program; or, (iii) Studying economics as a
> complementary field to another area of expertise (law, political
> science, public health, statistics, energy, etc.).
> Additional information about the program is available at the website
> https://ma.eco.utexas.edu.
> The first application deadline is February 15, 2013, and classes start
> July 15, 2013.  We are looking forward to welcoming our first cohort of
> Master's students in summer 2013!
> Please do not hesitate to contact us at ma-econ at austin.utexas.edu if
> you have any questions about the program.
> Sincerely,
> Jason Abrevaya
> Chair, Department of Economics
> The University of Texas at Austin
