As an economic major, I am considering a maths or statistics MA now (I wouldn't say a word for the US Eco MA except Duke and Tufts...and except for a few Econ Ma in CA and Euro, I consider that I need more alternatives). I have taken abstract algebra and basic RA(it's mainly Lebesgue's Integral theory, 'abstract' measure theory is not included), and I know about basic analysis and linear algebra, though I didn't take the course. Well, I am wondering whether I am qualified for a MA or MS degree which is designed for, say, people who need advanced maths in industry and secondary school teachers. And will it increase my chance to get a Phd in economics, or give me a non-zero probability in math or statistics Phd (I haven't done any research in these areas, thus I am not sure whether I'll like it)? Thanks.
