Dual Degree Applicants

The MAE program does accept dual-degree applications from U-M students currently in another Rackham graduate program. Current graduate students are eligible to apply once they have completed the first semester in their home program. We will begin reviewing applications in January. Admission is for the following fall term.

A dual degree can combine applied economics with public policy, mathematics, statistics, data science, natural resources, demography, industrial relations, engineering, and other fields. For information about dual degree options, please see the Rackham Graduate School website here and here.

U-M students currently in a Rackham graduate program can apply via the Rackham Graduate Program Dual Admission Application. For details, see the information under the "Dual Admission" heading here. A link to the application is included under "Application Submission." Applicants are required to submit a resume/CV, statement of purpose explaining their interest in pursuing the MAE degree, current U-M transcript, and official undergraduate transcript. (GRE score report is optional.) The deadline to apply for Fall 2022 admission is January 31, 2022.
