Department of Economics
The Department of Economics at the Farmer School of Business provides a unified framework to think about choices, their consequences, and the ability of policymakers to change outcomes. Although our major provides specific skills in areas such as econometrics, the key piece of intellectual capital acquired is a well-honed skill for critical thinking, especially with regard to problems that involve data and quantitative methods. These skills are in high demand among employers and graduate schools. Economics majors consistently rank in the top five for highest starting salaries and mid-career earnings and score the second highest of any major on the LSAT.
Our Degree Programs
We offer three undergraduate degrees, one minor, a Master of Arts degree in Economics, and the opportunity for high-achieving majors to earn their Bachelor's and Master’s degree in four years.
