Quantitative Economics Major

The quantitative economics major enables students to use elements of mathematics to model scenarios in microeconomics and macroeconomics. It teaches students empirical techniques that enable them to test hypotheses emerging from the underlying micro and macro theory by using data drawn from individual firms and entire economies around the world. Through their course choices, students can observe quantitative comparisons between benefits and costs in a variety of contexts that range from the environment to health, gender, labor, and systems for organizing economic activity.
