The Department of Economics offers a graduate education that focuses on developing students' analytic and research capabilities. The blend of coursework, active seminars, research workshops, and informal faculty-student interactions has met with substantial historical success, as demonstrated by the professional achievements of the programs' graduates, and recognition of program effectiveness in the rankings published by the National Academy of Sciences. Rochester prides itself in its tradition of close contact between students and faculty and we believe it is a primary source of the high value-added that the Rochester economics program provides.
