Consumer Economics

Complete a Master’s in Consumer Economics while fulfilling requirements for your Bachelor’s degree. Continue on to earn your undergraduate and graduate degrees within a five-year time frame.

Why Double Dawgs in Consumer Economics?

  • The University allows students to count up to 12 undergraduate credits toward both their Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees.
  • This can effectively give students a head-start in completing both degrees in five years or less.
  • This means that students who are pursuing a bachelor’s degree at UGA can use up to 12 undergraduate general elective hours toward a graduate degree in consumer economics*.
    • *with departmental permission
  • Because the Hope and Miller scholarships fund up to 127 credit hours, the Double Dawgs option gives students the opportunity to take advantage of undergraduate scholarship funding for a graduate program.

Time to Completion:

  •  Students complete their Master's degree in conjunction with their Bachelor's degree; thus, students can expect to complete both programs in approximately five years or less.
