From theory to practice

We make sure Blugold graduates are in high demand. Whether you are studying the global economic role of another country in that country or aiding a faculty member on important local community research, the skills you learn here will prepare you for a wide range of careers. You will gain knowledge through real-world internships with local employers and companies known around the world. All of these opportunities strengthen critical thinking skills championed by employers and may even land you a job before you graduate.

And economics students also have student organizations dedicated to econ majors and minors, because we know that more connected and socially engaged students are more successful students. 

When it comes to learning outside the classroom, economics has it down to a science.
