Do you feel that there should be more to Economics than second order conditions of constrained optima or intergenerational planning with infinite time horizons? Would you also like to examine economic theory from the perspective of the philosophy of science? Are you fascinated by the problems of the Third World, post-Keynesian macroeconomics, Marxian economics, ecological economics, the economics of gender, labor market institutions, or Bayesian econometrics?
If so, the economics Ph.D. program at the University of Utah may be for you.
The Ph.D. degree program prepares students for professional careers in teaching, research, business, and government. The program provides a broad mastery of theoretical and applied fields of economics. Both orthodox and heterodox approaches to economics are integral parts of the program which includes a technically sophisticated presentation of economic theory and quantitative methods as well as a variety of fields of specialization. The Department has approximately 50 Ph.D. students in residence, a faculty of 20 with Ph.D.s from leading universities across the U.S.
The department attempts to provide students receiving financial aid with teaching opportunities.
