The department of Economics offers a graduate program leading to the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree.
The department also offers a one-year Master of Arts (A.M.) program. However, applicants to the A.M. program should apply to the Ph.D. program, and are evaluated using the same criteria as applicants to the Ph.D. program. Students in the A.M. program are not funded by Brown. A.M. students who take the core examination and pass it will continue in the Ph.D. program and receive funding. In addition, Ph.D. students can earn the A.M. on the way to the Ph.D. or can receive the A.M. if they choose not to complete the Ph.D. program. The A.M. requires passing eight courses in the areas of Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, and Econometrics.
