Graduate Programs

The department of Economics offers two graduate degrees: PhD in Economics and MS in Economics.

Our program has a long-standing reputation in applied microeconomics, particularly in the areas of environmental and natural resource economics, industrial organization, and trade and development economics.

Our program is small by design, allowing students the opportunity to work closely with highly respected faculty. We emphasize that all students develop a solid foundation in quantitative methods and economic theory. This foundation is then built upon as students work with faculty to investigate challenging economic and financial issues that matter locally and around the globe. During the research process, we stress critical thinking and clear communication of the relevant issues.

We pride ourselves on our graduate placement record and dedication to mentoring students as they mature into professional economists, financial analysts, and future leaders.

For questions regarding our graduate programs you can email Kristin Lewis, our department's Graduate Coordinator, or call (307) 766-2175.
