NOTE: We enroll new PhD students in the Fall of odd-numbered years (every other year). We will begin accepting applications for Fall 2025 enrollment on August 15, 2024, and continue doing so until February 15, 2025.
An undergraduate major in economics is desirable but not necessary. Applicants must have a strong mathematics background, including one semester of matrix algebra and at least one year of calculus. Though not required, a course in real analysis is also strongly recommended. Students should also have a minimum GPA of at least 3.3.
Applicants must apply online. As part of that process, please submit the following:

Generous fellowships are available and are awarded on the basis of academic merit and potential for scholarship. We are committed to recruiting a diverse student body, and we encourage women and minorities to apply.
The online application, mailing address, and more detailed instructions are available at the Graduate Programs Office of the School of Liberal Arts.
