A few highlights of our department:

  • Undergraduate students have first-rate experiential learning experiences in class and faculty advised research opportunities out of class—moreover, see the Shapiro Scholarships page for information about our Shapiro Academic Scholarships for undergraduate economics majors, including summer research grants.
  • Graduate students all complete a faculty advised master’s paper, demonstrating their data analysis skills that employers highly value.
  • Unique 4+1 program allowing undergraduate students to take up to 9 credits of graduate courses as an undergraduate, easing the ability for our students to graduate with a bachelor’s (4 years) and master’s degree (1 year) in Economics in 5 years.
  • See our Careers in Economics page for updated information about further sources regarding economics as a major and future career opportunities.
