The program in Economics provides both the theoretical foundation and practical empirical tools necessary to function as an economist in today’s complex economic world. These theories and tools are analyzed both within the institutional structure of developed market economies and in their specific applications to developing and non-market economies.

Although the fields of specialization of the Economics major are not formally specified, one can identify three broad topics: macroeconomics, microeconomics, and empirical (data) analysis.
