    Taking graduate level classes non degree. Helpful?

    Sponsored Ad:
    Hi All,

    I am thinking of taking some graduate level classes such as microeconomic theory and mathematical economics and more math courses as a non degree student because I graduated this year. My profile is a little weak and I was wondering if taking classes as a non degree student would help. Or should I go for and MA?

    I plan on applying to PhD programs for 2016 and I believe most of the classes I would take for an MA probably won't transfer to some of the schools I am interested in, so I was wondering if doing an MA is worth it? Or would non degree classes do the trick?

    As far as I know non-degree classes are fine as long as they're from a relatively reputable place. If you're also on the hunt for letters, then it may be easier to enroll in an MA though.

    Also, it will likely be cheaper. Taking classes as a non-degree seeking student at your home institution is a great option for someone who went to a fairly good school but just didn't plan well enough.
