Oregon State University's Applied Economics Graduate Program offers MS/MA and PhD degrees in Applied Economics. The curricula provide, at both Master’s and Doctoral levels: (i) a foundation of rigorous core courses in economic theory, econometrics, and other quantitative methods; and (ii) areas of concentration in resource and environmental economics, trade and development, and other open fields tailored to students interest. Students employ economic theory and methods to examine important real-world problems with significant attention to the relevant institutions, contexts, and data.

The program is designed and staffed by OSU’s distinguished Graduate Faculty of Applied Economics, drawn from the Departments of Agricultural and Resources Economics; Forest Ecosystems and Society; Forest Engineering, Resources, and Management; the School of Social and Behavioral Health Sciences; and the Economics Program in the School of Public Policy.
