Excellence in Major Programs

For excellence in our majors, we are looking for mastery of core economic concepts and the ability to apply and use these concepts. The core concepts are developed in the principles and intermediate theory courses and provide the bedrock upon which the discipline rests. We will assess the progress of our majors in their knowledge of economics by examining their performance in the intermediate theory courses. Performance in these courses is an important measurement of the student's understanding of economics. Excellence in our major programs will also be indicated by the jobs and graduate schools our students pass into.
