We respect that economics is only one lens through which to examine societal problems and thus maintain an interdisciplinary approach on a variety of issues, while laying the groundwork for a reflective, ethical, and global understanding of the subject area.
In keeping with our recognition of the importance of interdisciplinary thinking, we encourage you to incorporate your other interests into the major, and more than half of our students choose to double major in another discipline, including Finance, Global Communications, French Studies, and Psychology. With many of our graduates now working in the government or in international organizations like the OECD and JP Morgan Chase, while others have been accepted into diverse graduate programs at schools like the University of Cambridge and Yale, you’ll soon discover that no matter what you pursue, Economics can provide a useful place from which to launch your future.
With every single one of our majors, you’ll find a carefully curated medley of core courses and electives, which will provide you with the tools you need to establish an unshakeable foundation in the principles and concepts fundamental to your growth within your disciplines of choice. Many majors also enable you to specialize further within the broader area of study.
