PhD Program at UC Irvine!


Ranked #24 among all public economics programs in the country (U.S. News & World Report), the University of California, Irvine graduate program in economics offers students 5 years of guaranteed funding.

Scholars in the department have a proven track record of earning competitive research funding from national agencies, including the National Science Foundation, Army Office of Research, and U.S. Department of Agriculture; from private foundations including the Russell Sage Foundation and Arnold Foundation; and from campus-level fellowships, such as the Public Impact, Fletcher Jones and Chancellor’s Club fellowships.

The department has achieved national stature by attracting well-known senior scholars to its faculty and through the advancement of a host of young economists who have achieved national prominence.

According to Academic Analytics data, UCI economics ranks 7th among all economics departments in articles published per faculty. The department ranks 8th in total number of articles published, and UCI economists produce 1.8% of all articles in the discipline, ranking 11th among institutions, with only 1% of the discipline’s faculty. And graduate students have incredible opportunities to publish alongside these world-renowned faculty.

And if that wasn’t enough, the UCI campus is located less than 10 miles from Newport Beach, is the #1 university committed to economic diversity and upward mobility (The New York Times College Access Index), and the #9 ranked public university in the U.S.(U.S. News & World Report).

The department has 28 permanent faculty members with research and teaching interests that span a broad range of fields. In addition to strengths in micro theory, macroeconomics and econometrics (Bayesian and classical), the department has expertise in many applied fields, including:

  • Economic history
  • Industrial organization
  • International economics
  • Labor economics
  • Public choice
  • Public finance
  • Transportation economics
  • Urban economics

UCI economists pursue research with real-world policy impacts in areas including minimum wage debate, California policy toward enterprise zones, regulation of airline alliances, California high-speed rail demand forecasts, and public health. And students have an opportunity to earn a master’s degree while in pursuit of their Ph.D.

Graduate students from UCI’s economics program have gone on to work in high-tech startups, research consultancy companies, government offices, and in professorial posts around the world. A quick sampling of recent placements:

  • Amazon
  • U.S. Census Bureau
  • Clemson University
  • U.S. Federal Reserve
  • Office of the Comptroller of Currency
  • Purdue University
  • SUNY Buffalo
  • Tulane University
  • University of Oklahoma
  • U.S. Department of the Treasury

If full funding, opportunities to publish and a proven track record of excellence in the field are what your mentees are looking for in a graduate program, have them contact us today to learn more about UCI economics.
