Program Description:

The graduate programs in economics at UNH are some of the most distinctive in the country. The M.A. program is based on a fast-track, ten-month calendar that provides rigorous training in economic theory and applied statistics. It also allows students to pursue applied coursework in international finance, environmental and resource economics, health economics, data analysis and information management, and international business. The doctoral program at UNH is one of only a few with a dual emphasis on training first-rate economists and outstanding college teachers. Students learn economic theory and econometrics at the highest level and can pursue course work and receive supervised training in the teaching of economics. Beyond its strengths in the fields of international economics, health economics, and environmental economics, the department is known for its emphasis on the history of economic thought and methodology. The graduate programs draw on faculty from the business, natural resources, health management, and policy, philosophy, and mathematics departments. The Department of Economics maintains an active and high-quality weekly research seminar, which attracts leading economists and researchers from around the country.
