The Economics Honors Program

The Honors Program in Economics provides students with the opportunity and support to delve deeply into an intellectual interest of their own choosing through the completion of a meaningful, sustained research project. At the end of a two-semester process of defining their novel research question, designing their empirical or theoretical approach, executing the research, drafting, and revising, students have completed their honors thesis. This process typically occurs through the Honors Seminars, but can also occur through Undergraduate Research Labs or Independent Studies.  Each spring, students present their research in a poster format at the Department of Economics Honors Thesis Poster Session. Students graduating in 2018 and 2019 created the four posters displayed.
