Program Description:

The Department of Economics at the University of Miami offers selective, high quality Doctor of Philosophy and Master of Arts programs. Students with a bachelor's degree may apply directly for either program although we encourage students to apply at the Ph.D. level if that is their ultimate goal. The Masters and Ph.D. programs provide a rigorous exposure to microeconomic and macroeconomic theory, monetary theory and policy, and quantitative methods and offer fields in human resource economics (which includes labor and health economics), economic development and international economics. Priority is assigned to both quality teaching and research. Small classes afford each student the opportunity to participate in discussions and benefit from continuous faculty-student interaction. Both the classroom and research components are supplemented by colloquia presented by internationally recognized scholars. The University's proximity to the emerging nations of the Caribbean, Central and South America, as well as student demand, were major considerations in defining the specific areas ofconcentration.
