The Economics Ph.D.

A well-respected program preparing students for academic and professional careers through research and application.

The Economics Ph.D. program provides students with the advanced training and knowledge necessary to pursue positions leading to careers in research and teaching at other institutions of higher learning, careers in economic analysis and forecasting, and careers in public policy analysis within local, state or federal government.

The Ph.D. is awarded to students who excel in the comprehensive examination and who write a dissertation that demonstrates their ability to conduct independent research. The coursework for the Ph.D. is an initial exposure to major contributions in the literature and applications of the methodology.

Students acquire competence through the study of the literature and development of research skills – the program develops this competence.
