The Economics Department is dedicated to promoting personal and professional development and to preparing students to enter professional life or pursue advanced studies at the graduate level. Economics courses provide insight into how the world works, training in rigorous qualitative and quantitative analysis, and a valuable perspective on today's pressing social issues.
Students pursuing a major in Economics have three options: a Bachelor of Arts degree, a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Economics, or a Bachelor of Science degree in Economic Theory and Methods. Students are also eligible for three scholarships. For additional information you should contact the Department's chairperson or stop by the office in Chafee 807.
