The PhD in Economics provides in-depth, rigorous training in economic theory and econometrics and prepares students for careers in research, teaching, and consulting in academia, private industry, and government.
Substantial exposure to economics course work at the undergraduate level is beneficial. Applicants are required to have college credit in differential calculus. Because of the necessary rigor of the curriculum, we also strongly recommend taking courses in integral and multivariable calculus and linear algebra prior to applying.
