Ph. D. Program
Could you give me a brief description of what would be considered normal progression through your Ph.D. program?
A typical student’s first year of study would cover the following core materials:
- Microeconomics (ECON 200A-C)
- Macroeconomics (ECON 210 A-C)
- Introductory Econometrics (ECON 220A-C)
- Computing (ECON 280)
In the second year, students finish the econometrics core (ECON 220D-F), and begin their elective courses.
In the third year, students complete elective courses and produce a literature review and an original paper, which typically serves as the start of a dissertation.
The average number of years to complete the program is 4-6 years.
