The Department of Economics offers two joint PhD programs: a PhD in Economics and Public Policy in conjunction with The Fletcher School, and a PhD in Human Developmental Economics in conjunction with the Eliot-Pearson Department of Child Study and Human Development. These programs offer individually tailored degrees with personal input from faculty members. Doctoral students will build a depth of knowledge in at least two specialized fields, and an ability to perform independent research that informs theory and/or policy with possible publication in a peer-reviewed journal.
