Graduate Student Life

Explore the Emory campus and life as a graduate student from anywhere in the world! We encourage you to reach out to our current graduate students and our graduate program staff with any questions you may have so we can guide you to other resources that may be helpful to you.

Life As An Emory Economics Ph.D. Student

In addition to an academic environment that fosters cooperation and mutual support, Economics Ph.D. students enjoy opportunities for fun and *socializing. Every year, the department hosts welcome parties as well as a holiday party, happy hour gatherings, and a co-ed/recreational soccer team for economics department faculty and students.
