About this course
The PhD program in economics is a full-time program intended to prepare students for teaching and research positions at four-year institutions of higher education and for research positions in public agencies or private business organizations. The doctoral program is relatively small in size, with about 45 doctoral students in residence at any time. The low student-faculty ratio allows us to provide greater faculty attention and mentoring compared to larger programs. Students are involved in teaching, research and seminar activities, becoming valued members of the department. Most of our doctoral students are supported through teaching and research assistantships for five years. Stipends are highly competitive with any graduate program in the country.
