Economics Courses at BU

Principles Courses

We offer principles courses each semester in large lectures (approximately 225 students). Additionally, each large lecture has associated discussion sections; teaching assistants lead these sections and meet weekly in groups of less than 30.

Other Undergraduate Courses

We offer a wide variety of undergraduate courses, as well as opportunities for directed studies and honors thesis work.

Master’s Courses

Masters classes are more advanced in terms of concepts and mathematical analysis. Qualified undergraduates are welcome in some Masters courses, but interested students should seek guidance from their advisor.

PhD Courses

PhD courses train students to become independent researchers on the cutting edge of economics.
