Our graduate program prepares students for teaching and research careers in the fields of Econometrics, Economic History, Financial Econometrics, Health Economics, International Trade and Development, Labor Economics, Micro Theory/Industrial Organization, and Monetary and Open Economy Macroeconomics. During the first year of the program our students concentrate on the core areas of Econometrics, Macroeconomics and Microeconomics. Later, each student chooses two fields of specialization within those mentioned above. Our objective is to provide students both with broad training in theory and econometrics breadth and with specialization in two-three fields. The program focuses on the doctorate degree; the only students admitted for the Masters degree are those in another PhD program at UNC or in a professional program at UNC.
