The undergraduate majors build on theoretical foundations of microeconomics and macroeconomics, and stress applications of theory to a variety of topics, as reflected in over 40 upper-level courses. The School offers majors in Economics and Economics-Accounting and many students choose to dual major in subjects such as mathematics, psychology, history, etc. Another popular option is to augment the major with a sequence, such as the Financial Economics Sequence or the Leadership Sequence.
Students may participate in research with faculty, sponsored by the various Research Institutes on campus, and all students conduct their own research that culminates in a thesis, which is a requirement for graduation.
The faculty consists of 30 full-time members (with about 25 in residence in a given academic year), who are committed teacher-scholars.
