Economics

Field Description

Doctoral degree candidates must choose a major and at least two minor subjects, one of which can be basic analytical economics. Within the first year of study, Ph.D. students should complete requirements in mathematics and econometrics and pass qualifying examinations in micro- and macroeconomics. Completing those core requirements, and selecting a core committee member, satisfy the requirements of the basic analytical economics minor.

Students interested in this field may also want to consider the Fields of Agricultural Economics; and Management.
