The economics graduate program offers degree work in both theoretical and applied fields of economics with an emphasis on quantitative economic analysis. The strong quantitative component in this degree emphasizes multivariate calculus, linear algebra, and econometrics (statistical methods of economic data). Economics coursework consists of microeconomic theory, macroeconomic theory, economic growth, price theory, cost-benefit analysis, econometrics, economic modelling and forecasting, industrial organization, economic development, game theory, optimization theory, and financial, computational, international, mathematical, monetary, public, and labor economics. Fields of specialization and written preliminary examinations include microeconomic theory, macroeconomic theory, econometrics, economic growth and development, financial economics, game theory, computational economics, industrial organization, labor economics, international economics, mathematical economics, monetary economics, and public economics.
Program Delivery
  • via classroom (the majority of instruction is face-to-face)
Prerequisites for Admission
Special Application Requirements:
Students interested in the Economics minor are strongly encouraged to confer with their major field advisor and director of graduate studies, and the Economics director of graduate studies regarding feasibility and requirements.
For an online application or for more information about graduate education admissions, see the General Information section of this website.
Program Requirements
Use of 4xxx courses toward program requirements is permitted under certain conditions with adviser approval.
All courses must be taken A/F and completed with grades of B or better (one 8xxx-level course may carry a grade of C). The minimum cumulative GPA for minor field coursework is 3.0.
