  • 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, BA and 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.

    The Graduate Program (PhD and Masters) reflects the Department's strengths in  Labor EconomicsPublic EconomicsInternational Economics (International Trade and Economic Development), Urban Economics, and Econometrics. Recent job placements of our graduates regularly include research oriented positions in higher education, government and private industry. Our graduates also frequently publish papers from their  dissertations in select journals
