Program Overview

The Economics doctoral program at FSU prepares students for a variety of careers in academia, government, and the private sector.

Our students work closely with faculty to engage in cutting edge research. Our faculty are especially strong in experimental economics and applied econometrics, including economic history, urban, and public economics. The department also maintains a strong focus on microeconomics and applied microeconomics. Among the fields we offer include: Applied Econometrics, Experimental Economics, Financial and Monetary Economics, Industrial Organization, International Economics, Labor Economics, Law and economics, Population Economics, Public Economics, and Urban Economics.

The department is connected with a number of interdisciplinary centers and supports internal working groups through weekly workshops conducted throughout the year in which presentations are made by faculty, students, and invited speakers.

We strive to engage students in research early. This focus has led to several publications by our graduate students and collaborations between graduate students and faculty.
