Graduate Students

School of Economic Sciences

The School of Economic Sciences (SES) was formed, in 2004, by merging the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics from the College of Agricultural, Human and Natural Resource Sciences and the Department of Economics from the College of Business and Economics. SES has 27 full-time faculty working with three support staff, 80 PhD and 35 MS students. Undergraduate enrollment includes 230 majors in economics, agricultural economics, agribusiness, and environmental and resource economics and management, and over a thousand students taking Economics courses as part of their minor degree (or as electives) every year. SES offers graduate programs leading to the Master of Science degree in Applied Economics and the Doctor of Philosophy degree in Economics and in Agricultural Economics.

Our faculty members, instructors, administrators and staff are committed to the professional development of each and every student and strive to provide them with the tools they need to succeed. Both PhD and MS students have 24-hour access to SES study areas and a computer lab designated for their use only. PhD students receive office space here in Hulbert Hall, the same building where our faculty members are housed, which promotes discussions, collaborations, and coauthored journal articles between students and faculty. We are proud to say that the professional relationships that are developed here at SES often extend far beyond WSU, as faculty continues to work with alumni on research and teaching projects.

The Economics Graduate Student Association promotes activities regularly and provides useful resources here:
