At Dickinson, economics majors learn to think creatively and deeply about some of the most important economic concerns facing the world. There are two majors supported by the Department of Economics: economics and quantitative economics.
The 11-course economics major explores economics from a variety of traditional and nontraditional theoretical perspectives to address issues of economic efficiency, economic growth, social justice, power, individual freedom, discrimination, cultural values and environmental destruction.
The 13-course quantitative economics major allows students to graduate with a STEM degree by focusing attention on econometric and mathematical modeling of economic issues. International students graduating with STEM-eligible degrees have the option of staying in the U.S. for three years after graduating.

“I’ve wanted to be an economics major for the better part of a decade; I believe economics to be the science of human interaction, and I’ve always been interested by the human insights it brings. One of the most promising ways that we can address the problems of tomorrow is through the engine of economic empowerment.”
