The study of economics at Trinity gives students access to a diverse curriculum, expert faculty, and unmatched enrichment programs to understand how the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services affects the world in which we live.

The department offers classes in virtually all major economic subfields, including labor economics and international trade, as well as specialized areas such as environmental economics and the economic analysis of law. While pursuing their degrees, our students have opportunities to participate in international study in Europe and Latin America, teach economics in local schools and undertake ambitious independent study projects.

Economics is an excellent preparation for a wide range of eventual careers. Many of our majors go on to pursue advanced degrees at highly ranked graduate programs in economics, law, business and public policy. Others go directly into business and/or international careers.
