Would it make sense

    Lets say I major in math and minor in economics. Is it feasible to do a PhD in economics/mathematical economics? Is this conidered applied math?

    Thanks :smile:

    it is different for different school. Most of schools in US do not even ofter mathematic and economics together. The degree that is the most alike is perhaps call operational research.

    Should it (does it) matter whether your undergraduate degree is in math or physics?
    PhD programs with the math/economics relation exist (here in the US), where you can recieve a PhD in econophysics or something similar at certain schools. I know the http://www.phys.uh.edu/econophysics.htm" [Broken] offers such a program.
