As an Economics major at Connecticut College, you learn to think analytically, pose and solve problems, and use models to construct and test hypotheses. You are exposed to microeconomics and macroeconomics, and apply what you learn in fields from finance, labor and environmental economics to industrial organization, public finance and development.
Crunch the numbers
You will do original research and apply what you learn. Recent senior honors theses have analyzed the influence of American political philosopher John Rawls on economics, the effects of immigration on English labor markets, and attitudes about money in ancient Greece and Rome. One student correlated health outcomes with R&D spending by the pharmaceutical industry in the world’s developed economies. You can also focus your work by conducting research with faculty, participating in a departmental lecture series or completing a College-funded internship.
You will have multiple opportunities to study abroad, including the College’s own Study Away Teach Away program, which takes an entire class and one or two professors abroad for a semester. Two economics faculty regularly lead SATAs to Vietnam, giving you a unique opportunity to explore the fast-growing economy of Southeast Asia.
