About the Programs
At the heart of the department is an emphasis on applied economics that prepares students for a wide range of careers in the private and public sectors, as well as further study in graduate programs.
Resource allocation, cost-benefit analysis, efficiency, economic growth, inflation, unemployment and equity are some of the issues students will investigate while pursuing an economics degree.
The department's applied nature provides students with many opportunities to work with faculty who are actively engaged in local, regional and national research. These include employment in the Fiscal and Economic Research Center, through undergraduate research projects and participation in the Whitewater Economics Society. Internships are also available.
Students will find faculty members to be analytical, critical, engaged, approachable and professional.
The career opportunities for graduates vary and can include market or policy analysis, banking and finance, teaching or any other entry-level position in business or government that values analytical skills and quantitative literacy.
