Welcome to the website of the Department of Economics at Syracuse University. Members of our faculty are known nationally and internationally for their applied microeconomic research on issues of public policy relevance.
We have a high-quality undergraduate program within which we have two alternative tracks,
BS. In both tracks we provide a strong foundation in micro- and macroeconomics through our introductory and intermediate courses, which is followed by more specialized courses or electives. Undergraduates can choose from a wide range of electives in International Economics, Labor Economics, Public Economics, Urban Economics, Health Economics, Development Economics and Econometrics. There is an
Economics Association, sponsored by the Department and run by students with advice from faculty. Students are also eligible for Omicron Delta Epsilon (Economics Honor society) and awards for academic distinction.
Graduate Program (PhD and Masters) reflects the Department's strengths in
