About

The Economics Department of Columbia University  offers a general Economics major in addition to five interdisciplinary majors structured to suit the interests and professional goals of a heterogeneous student body.

Overview

About the programme

Economics is the study of the ways in which society allocates its scarce resources among alternative uses and the consequences of these decisions. The areas of inquiry deal with a varied range of topics such as international trade, domestic and international financial systems, labor market analysis, and the study of less developed economies. Broadly speaking, the goal of an economics major from Columbia University is to train students to think analytically about social issues and, as such, provide a solid foundation for not only further study and careers in economics, but also for careers in law, public service, business, and related fields.
