Sometimes the best way to see the big picture is to dive into the details. The study of economics will provide you with the tools to understand systems as diverse as financial markets, environmental issues, government policy, medical insurance, global economy and social inequities. Our economics program focuses on international and local research and provides a solid preparation for law school or graduate studies.
The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire — and specifically the faculty and staff of the economics department — prepared me to be a critical thinker, a problem-solver, and a better citizen of the world.

Thanks from an alumna
Helué Vázquez-Valverde, a 2016 graduate with degrees in economics and finance, takes a moment before commencement to thank the faculty who helped guide her through her college career. And she also had one more very special thank you to hand out after that.
