Interdisciplinary PhD in Economics and Statistics

Students must complete their primary program’s degree requirements along with the IDPS requirements. Statistics requirements  must not unreasonably impact performance or progress in a student’s primary degree program.

The Economics program allows students to replace required courses in Probability and Statistics with more advanced courses by petition.

Special note about integrating IDPS requirements and Economics requirements:

The Doctoral Program in Economics requires students to complete two majors and two minors. IDPS requires one of these major fields to be Econometrics. The IDPS requirement for Computation & Statistics may be used to satisfy one of the minor field requirements in the Doctoral Program in Economics as long as the student’s other minor field is in Economics, and is not a research or ad-hoc minor.
