The Department encourages applications from students with broad intellectual interests as well as strong quantitative skills, regardless of their undergraduate majors.

The M.A. in Economics can be a terminal degree leading to careers in business, government and non-governmental organizations, or junior college teaching. Because many master's students study part-time, the Department schedules as many core courses in the evening as possible.

The Ph.D. curriculum provides thorough training for professional economists through course work, tutorials and research workshops. It gives students a solid foundation in economic theory and econometrics and offers several carefully selected fields of specialization. The Department's Ph.D. graduates choose careers in academia, research, and business.
