Our undergraduate program builds on a foundation of quantitative micro and macroeconomic theory as well as a rigorous sequence in data analysis. We offer a wide variety of electives which build on this base for in-depth study of health economics, economic history, behavioral economics, labor economics, financial economics, development economics, macroeconomics, international economics, and more.
Three masters degree programs (the Master of Arts in Economics, Master of Arts in Economic Policy, and Master of Arts in Global Development Economics) and our Ph.D. program take these topics further and develop a deep understanding of both quantitative methods and economic content.
