    Can this be right? University Rhode Island PHD does not require a math for economist?

    Sponsored Ad:
    Looking over their site I just noticed this. The list of required courses, does not contain a 518 Math for Economists.

    Link is Phd--- corresponding course numbers are on a link on the side bar.

    How can this be? Is anyone familiar with this program? I can't imagine that this is accurate.

    Yes. the link is provided. sorry the text of the link says "Phd" in the second line of my original post. I couldn't figure out how to change that text.

    It could be a matter of reclassifying things. Our school doesn't require a math for economists class either, but it was incorporated into our micro class.

    Nothing wrong with the way you posted it, I just missed it.

    In any event, many PhD programs do not have a math for economists course...because they expect you will have the needed math before arriving. Or, as Double Jump points out, some programs incorporate the needed math in other courses.
