For Students

Welcome UW-Eau Claire Students!

Economics students examine topics of obvious importance to human well-being such as poverty, unemployment, international trade, economic growth, inflation, monopoly power and resource allocation in areas such as education, health, business and the environment.

If you would like to declare Economics as your major, drop by the Economics Department, Schneider Hall room 476, and make an appointment to see Dr. Wayne Carroll, the Economics Department Chair. He will talk to you about program options, assign you an adviser that matches your interests, and of course, give you your free T-shirt!
