A master's degree in economics is not a requirement.
International students must demonstrate their proficiency in English, by taking the TOEFL or the IELTS examination. The Graduate School requires a minimum of 550 (213 on computer-based exam or 80 on iBT exam) or better on the TOEFL, or a 6.5 on the IELTS. The TOEFL is preferred by our department. A strong speaking score is particularly important if you wish to receive funding.
We recommend completing all GRE and TOEFL exams by December 15. To ensure that scores reach Admissions in a timely manner,please provide ETS with the following codes: University of Utah: 4853 Department of Economics: 1801
Preparation in mathematics through calculus, statistics, and linear algebra is strongly recommended. It may be necessary for students not fully prepared for a graduate program to take remedial courses. Students who lack the proper background in micro and macroeconomic theory, statistics, and mathematics must take courses to remedy these deficiencies prior to their first year of study.
Detailed information on the University of Utah Graduate School admissions policies can be found at http://admissions.utah.edu/graduate/
The Ph.D. program is scheduled so that the courses are offered in a sequence; therefore, it is only possible to start the Ph.D. program in the fall.
The Fall application deadline is February 1st. Applicants will hear back approximately mid-May.
Applications to our PhD program are made online through Apply Yourself.
Questions related to the application procedures should be directed to Academic Advisor Jill Wilson
