Environmental quality, international Economics concerns, urban and regional problems, poverty, inflation and unemployment. Willamette University’s economics program challenges students to explore how these important social issues are shaped by the activities of private interests, public institutions and interest groups.


Through a broad range of topical elective courses and one-on-one mentoring, we prepare students for lifelong, independent critical inquiry into economic issues.

Economics major internship program at Willamette University enables students to gain “real world” experience in both private and public sector enterprises, including the Legislative Revenue Office, Office of Economic Analysis, Department of Forestry and other state agencies located adjacent to or near campus.

Learning outcomes

A background in economics is valuable preparation for a wide variety of postgraduate educational and career opportunities. Willamette graduates have gone on to pursue advanced degrees in business, public administration and law, and they work in such diverse fields as medicine, social work and education.

The principal objective of economics courses is to help students develop the ability to think clearly about complex economic, political and social issues and to gain an understanding of how the economic activities of private and public institutions or interest groups relate to issues such as inflation, unemployment, poverty, environmental quality, urban and regional problems, and international economic concerns.

A solid background in economics is valuable to students preparing for graduate work in economics, business, public administration, and law; it is also useful as preparation for possible careers in such diverse fields as business, law, government, medicine, social work, and education. Courses in the other social sciences, mathematics and computer science, English and foreign languages, also contribute significantly to preparation for such graduate study and career opportunities.
