University of Connecticut College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Department of Economics

Graduate Program

The department offers both an MA degree and a Ph.D. degree. The MA Program is designed to be a one year program, with two semesters of coursework followed by completion of a Master's Paper. The Ph.D. program takes an average of five years to complete.

Currently, about 70 students are enrolled in Economics Graduate Programs. About 30% of our students are women, 70% are international students, and over 80% of PhD students receive financial aid. We feel that the diversity of our students is important, and adds to the overall strength of our program.
