Here at Chicago we aim to convey the ideas and methods of academic economics. Broadly defined, economics is the study of how society allocates scarce resources. From principles to advanced topics classes, from preparatory courses in mathematics and statistics to research opportunities, the program strives to convey how economists reason and how they analyze models and compare model implications to observations.
Chicago students use their B.A. in economics for a wide range of career paths that include further professional degrees in law, business, and medicine, graduate level work in applied economics and economic policy, as well as Ph.D. training for economic research careers.
