Welcome to the Department of Economics

home njhallLocated in historic New Jersey Hall, the Economics Department at Rutgers University–New Brunswick has a long tradition of excellence in research, teaching, and service. Our faculty represent a broad array of disciplines within economics. Our faculty are leaders in their areas of research and lecture to universities, government agencies, and institutions around the world. Our faculty are regular members of national panels and research groups. 

The Economics Department offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Among the most popular at Rutgers, our undergraduate offerings include a Major and Minor in Economics, an Economics Honors Program, and a variety of certificate programs. For graduate students, there is a Ph.D. in Economics with financial support; while the program is relatively small, it is very high quality. Our graduate students are employed at universities in the U.S. and around the world, at government agencies both here and abroad, and at numerous prominent private sector employers.
