PhD program

PhD in economics

Our PhD program offers students a strong foundation in economic theory and econometrics and a variety of fields where these tools can be applied. We offer training in the areas of public policy, labour economics, macro-economics, monetary economics, econometrics, natural resources, environmental and health economics. We believe in an ‘open-door’ atmosphere, which is intended to engage and stimulate graduate students in their chosen paths of research.

Our PhD students are funded for up to 12 on-campus terms, and can work as research assistants as well as teaching assistants. For students wishing to advance their teaching skills, we have a limited number of course instructor positions available.
