Economics has two streams in the graduate program: Economics and Econometrics, which places greater emphasis on theory (micro and macro), mathematics and statistical methods, and Economics and Society, which places greater emphasis on how the distribution of wealth and power affects the socioeconomic and physical environment. The graduate program in the Economics and Econometrics stream requires students to take more core courses in theory, mathematics and statistics, while the Economics and Society stream is more individually tailored to the student’s research. Applicants to the graduate program in Economics apply to one stream, and are not considered for admission to the other stream. Applicants who wish to specialize in Agricultural Economics must apply to the Economics and Econometrics stream. All other applicants are advised to carefully check admission and program requirements to decide which stream provides the best fit. For more information on each stream please visit the Graduate Calendar.
