The Ph.D. program in economics at UC Merced prepares students to contribute to a discipline that is increasingly problem-centered, requiring mastery of frontier quantitative methods and a new wave of economic theory incorporating insights from multiple perspectives. This spirit is embodied by our young, vibrant, and research-active faculty conducting research in a variety of areas, including development, migration, labor economics, behavioral and experimental economics, innovation and culture.
