Economics at Union

The economics curriculum at Union is designed to provide students with the intellectual tools they need to understand and critically evaluate the many economic issues they confront on a daily basis.  There are three different ways to major in economics at Union:  Economics – the standard major; Managerial Economics – for those planning careers in management; and Interdisciplinary – economics combined with any other Union major.  Each major requires introductory economics, intermediate microeconomics, macroeconomics, econometrics, and elective courses.  A very important part of the department’s curriculum is its emphasis on student research.  Research papers are required in a number of the department’s courses, and all majors complete a two-term thesis.
