Program Information

Degrees Offered:

Ph.D.- Economics, M.A.- Economics

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The M.A. program is designed to equip the student with a thorough understanding of economic analysis and its application to policy analysis in many fields. Many students use the M.A. as a stepping stone towards a Ph.D. degree, but others are interested in an M.A. as a terminal degree. Those in the first category are helped by the program structure which allows core courses required for the M.A. to also fulfill part of the core requirements for the Ph.D. in Economics.

The Ph.D. in Economics Program is designed to prepare the student for university teaching and research, and for positions as economists in government, business and industry. The program emphasizes the development of advanced research and scholarship skills in applied economics areas. To accomplish this, the program has developed strong fields in: econometrics, economic development, industrial organization, international economics, and labor economics. The program has a good track record in placing its graduates in desirable positions.
