Department Fares Well in Recent Study

The Department fared well in a recent study on the research output of 129 U.S. economics departments that offer PhD degrees [“A Guide to Graduate Study in Economics: Ranking Economics Departments by Fields of Expertise,” Therese C. Grijalva and Clifford Nowell, Southern Economic Journal, 74 (2008), 971-996]. In three of the 17 fields studied, UConn ranked within the top 20 programs:

4th in Law and Economics (after Berkeley, Harvard, and Vanderbilt);

12th in Urban, Rural, and Regional Economics (after U.Illinois-Chicago, Harvard, Syracuse, MIT, BC, Berkeley, FSU, Georgia State, Wayne State, Princeton, and UCSD); and

15th in Agricultural and Natural Resource Economics (after Iowa State, NC State, Wyoming, Harvard, Yale, UCSB, MIT, URI, Georgetown, SUNY Binghamton, Stanford, Colorado, Utah State, and RPI).
