Members of our faculty are known nationally and internationally for their applied microeconomic research on issues of public policy relevance.
We have a high-quality undergraduate program within which we have two alternative tracks, BA and BS. We also offer a combined BS+MA degree in which students can earn an MA with one additional year of study. In each track, we provide a strong foundations in micro- and macroeconomics through our introductory and intermediate courses, which is followed by more specialized courses or electives.
Graduate Program (PhD and Masters) reflects the Department's strengths in
International Economics (International Trade and Economic Development),
Urban Economics, and
Econometrics. A distinguishing feature of our Ph.D. program is that we have a tradition of providing guidance and support that
helps students learn how to shape their work in ways that facilitate publication in peer-reviewed journals. As a result, many of our students publish papers from their dissertations in select journals.
