I got the following question sent to me this morning by a prospective

Today I am looking into the various options for pursuing my studies at
the graduate level, but as you know, the field is dominated by the
neoclassical school. At the undergraduate level this was tolerable; but
I cannot in good faith write a Master's or PhD thesis in the
neoclassical paradigm. So I decided to come to you for help. I am aware
of many universities, in the US, Canada and the UK, which offer graduate
degrees in economics. But I am not aware of the theoretical leanings of
their faculty. Since you have experience in the field, I was wondering
if you could point me in the right direction. I know you teach computer
science, not economics, but if you know of any universities that offer
graduate degrees in economics and have faculty sympathetic to non-market
systems - or even just broadly heterodox faculty - I would be very
grateful if you could point me towards them."

Which colleges would people suggest?
