Economics is about people – the decisions they make as individuals, the social institutions they create, and the complex interactions between them. The Department of Economics helps students develop broadly transferable skills in analytical reasoning and quantitative methods that enable them to better understand historical trends, interpret today’s headlines, and contribute to solving the most pressing human problems in an ever-evolving world. We offer majors in Economics and Mathematics-Economics.
How to Declare a Major
To declare a major in Economics or Mathematics-Economics, please email Dr. Jason Jones to set up an appointment.
