# Pre-Econ PhD Track

PhD programs prepare students to independently produce economic research. PhD economists generally pursue careers in one of three areas: Academia, Government, or Industry (as Economic Consultants or In-House Economists). In preparation for an Econ PhD program, most undergraduates will include mathematics as a double major or at least a minor.
