What will I learn?

A PhD in Applied Economics will give you the skills to conduct research for businesses, governments, think tanks, and other research organizations, as well as to train the next generation of applied economics professionals as an academic.

The PhD program combines advanced courses in applied economics with a major research dissertation. The core of the program focuses on microeconomic theory and quantitative methods with one advanced course in macroeconomics. The student and their advisory committee determine the remainder of the student’s field courses.

The PhD in Applied Economics is a collaborative program offered by the departments of Agricultural and Resource Economics, Economics, and Finance and Management Science, and the Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy at the University of Saskatchewan.
