Are you considering getting a Ph.D. in economics? Do you enjoy thinking of research questions and working with economic models and data to figure out the answers? Would you be interested in a career doing economic research at a university, government agency, think tank or industry? If this sounds like you, you are invited to an information session on obtaining a Ph.D. in economics on October 26 at 4 pm. We will cover questions including the following: Which courses do I need to take before applying? How important is RA work? Do I need to write a thesis? What scores do I need on my GRE? Which schools should I apply to? What kind of job will I be qualified for? And of course we will respond to the questions that you bring.
