To enter into the study of Economics at Trinity College is to enter a particular way of thinking about the world. The central feature of economic reasoning is the relationship between individual action and the (often) unintended social and economic outcomes that result. 


Economic inquiry attempts to understand the mechanisms of interaction and associated outcomes whether individuals are acting individually or in concert through markets and other institutional structures.

We offer a bachelor degree in Economics at the Trinity College. The world of economics thus encompasses fundamental institutions and activities that govern “economic” outcomes—prices of goods, the amount of private and public investment, the wealth or poverty of nations and persons, unemployment rates, the structure of organizations, the benefits and burdens of globalization and trade, the quality of the environment and health care, etc. 

We use this way of thinking to understand how different institutions promote or retard growth, the effects of differing monetary and fiscal policies, markets for health, labor, environmental goods, investments and invention, financial assets, trade; yes, even sports and art.

Learning Goals

  • We believe economics draws on an analytical toolkit that can be applied to a variety of domains. Even within sub-fields, there is often significant debate. 
  • This is part of what makes economics, and economic research, so exciting. 
  • For this reason, and in the interest of academic freedom, we encourage our highly qualified instructors to teach a variety of schools of thought, rather than standardizing the curriculum in a way which presents economics as a settled or uniform discipline.
