The Department of Economics offers programs of study leading to the Master of Arts (MA) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees in economics. The program is ranked 10th in agricultural and natural resource economics, and 19th in economic history amongst all PhD-granting institutions in the United States. Newly revamped and constantly expanding, the program seeks top-performing students who are prepared to conduct rigorous research. Students do not need to have a bachelor’s degree in economics, but applicants should have a strong math background.

Currently economics faculty can supervise dissertations in the following areas (according to the Journal of Economic Literature (JEL) standard classification codes):

-Econometrics (JEL C1 – C4)
-Macroeconomics (JEL E)
-Labor economics (JEL J)
-Development economics (JEL O1)
-Environmental economics (JEL Q)

The MA curriculum includes core courses on theory and econometrics and electives.

Approximately two-thirds of the PhD students in the program qualify for funding in the form of graduate or research assistantships, which includes tuition scholarship and medical insurance.
