Minnesota Graduate Students

We are proud of the research contributions that our past graduates have made in Economics and expect that this year’s group will continue that tradition. We push them hard here, and they respond well as you can see from the enclosed curricula.

We would also like to emphasize that our students already have extensive teaching experience. Minnesota students in the later years of their program are typically supported by teaching assistantships that give them full responsibility for selected undergraduate courses.

Foreign students are first required to demonstrate fluency in spoken English. All students are given classroom critiques as well as other assistance in developing teaching expertise. As a result, each student enters the job market with a full repertoire of notes and techniques for undergraduate economics teaching. Each curriculum  lists the courses that the student has taught.

Director of Undergraduate Studies Dr. Simran Sahi can give additional information about each student’s teaching performance. She can be reached at by e-mail at ssahi@umn.edu.
