Welcome to the Ph.D. program in economics at the University of Kansas! The Ph.D. program is for advanced students of economics, with a focus on research and teaching. We seek dedicated students, train them in theory and practice of economics, and help guide and support them toward their dissertation research and placement.
Our program has several notable features. It provides a solid foundation in modern economic analysis, develops expertise in two specializations, provides milestones and incentives for dissertation research, and supports graduate student professional development and placement. We have a long-standing tradition of producing Ph.D. economists with strong foundational skills and expertise, and most of our Ph.D. students find jobs in their areas before graduation.
