If a person has a Bachelors Degree in Political Science and decides to also major in Economics, would he/she be able to get a Masters Degree in 2 years or less and end up with a Bachelors Degree in Political Science and a Masters Degree in Economics, or would it be like starting all over again and end up with a Bachelors Degree in Political Science and a Bachelors Degree in Economics?

This issue does not have a "definite" answer based on the information that you have provided. However, it is possible that this could occur. You would need to contact the university you are considering and discuss their admission requirements as they will differ by school. Most are going to want to see some math or economics at the undergraduate level - if you do not have the required courses you would need to take just the missing classes first at the undergraduate level before your admission into the graduate program. In addition, most will require GRE scores of a certain level.

For example, if you CLICK HERE, you will see admission information related to NYU. Note that it is not necessary to have an economics undergrad degree but there are certain requirements they have. Each University would be slightly different and you would need to contact the admissions for a nearby University you are considering and they will walk you through the steps necessary.

It might take you slightly more than 2 years to complete but it should not be like "starting over."

All the best to you as you look at advancing your degree.
