Following the campus guidelines for Coronavirus all UC Davis classes, lectures, seminars, labs and discussion sections will move to virtual instruction and remain virtual through the end of spring quarter 2020, including final exams. Given this, the department’s administrative functions have moved to remote work conditions. To contact staff members of the department via e-mail or phone, please go to our administrative staff contact page. 

Is an M.A. degree helpful?

If I have already earned an M.A. degree in Economics, will it take me less time to earn a Ph.D. degree at UC Davis than a student who has not yet completed an M.A. degree?


That depends on whether or not you would be allowed to skip some requirements at UC Davis.
