1.Ph.D Program description
The Economics doctoral program at Arizona prepares students for positions in universities, in the private sector, and in government and non-profit organizations. Students work closely with faculty, and most students receive financial support for their entire residency in the department.
The Department's faculty has long been among the world's best in experimental economics and in economic history. The Department also maintains a strong focus on microeconomics, particularly industrial organization and labor economics.

6.Financial Aid & Assistantships
Assistantships provide a stipend of $15,000 per year. Most first-year students who are awarded an assistantship are awarded a $2,000 fellowship as well, to help offset the costs of relocating and setting up housekeeping. This brings their first-year income to $17,000. Assistantships include a 100% waiver of tuition and an 80% waiver of the $5,280 in registration fees. Additional fee waivers are often available for the remaining 20% of the registration fees. After his or her first year in the program every student who is making satisfactory progress toward the Ph.D. degree receives full assistantship funding in return for providing either research or teaching assistance to a faculty member. Most students supplement this by teaching one or more courses in the summer session and/or the winter session between semesters. This teaching brings many of our advanced students’ annual incomes to $20,000 or more while they are completing the degree.
How many applications do you usually receive? How many applicants do you admit?
We receive about 120 applications per year, of which we admit roughly 20 - 30.
What percentage of your students are international students?
It varies from year to year, but generally between 40% and 60% of our students in residence are international students.
What were the average GRE scores of last year’s admitted students?
The average GRE scores of our last incoming class were Verbal: 500 and Quant: 790.
