The Economics Program

Welcome to the Economics Program, in the Department of Physical and Computational Sciences. 

We are the home of the hardest working students on campus.  In addition to many all-campus awards our graduates included the valedictorians for 2004 and 2005.  Also, the valedictorians for 2009, 2010, and 2014 had nearly half of their required courses in our program.
