Honors/Independent Study



We in the economics department encourage qualified students to undertake honors study, the opportunity to combine independent work with a regular course of study.

Our economics majors apply what they learn here in many original pieces of research. We've had senior honors theses on how the work of American political philosopher John Rawls influenced economics, the impact of immigration on English labor markets and attitudes about money in ancient Greece and Rome. One student looked at the pharmaceutical industry's research and development spending in the world's developed economies and its impact on health outcomes.
