Economic Education: Ph.D.


The doctorate in economic education is designed to train the next generation of leaders in this fast-growing field. It is a joint program of the Department of Economics and the School of Education.

The field of economic education focuses on developing and evaluating economic and financial literacy programs and curricula in the K-12 school system, universities and a wide variety of outreach programs.

Traditionally, professionals and scholars in this field have been trained in either economics or education, with little or no formal training in the other area. This is no longer adequate. The increasing complexity and importance of economics in today’s world requires scholars and leaders who have a deeper understanding of both disciplines.

The program draws on the strengths of the University of Delaware’s economics and education graduate programs and its nationally-recognized Center for Economic Education and Entrepreneurship.
