Welcome to the Department of Economics at Texas A&M University – a highly ranked program with world-class faculty in a variety of fields. Our department is passionate about giving students the education they need to succeed in an ever changing world.
To build a solid base of understanding, students take foundational courses in microeconomics, macroeconomics and mathematics, then refine those skills in statistics and intermediate economic theory classes. In upper-level courses these reasoning abilities are applied to specific situations, with a particular focus on understanding social problems from an economics perspective. The Economics Research Laboratory at Texas A&M, one of the world’s foremost experimental economics research facilities, offers opportunities for students to conduct their own experiments as part of coursework or independent research.
The Department offers both a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Science degree, along with two five-year programs joint with the Bush School of Government & Public Service. In addition to its Ph.D. program, the Department also offers a Masters of Science of Economics with concentrations in Financial Economics or Econometrics.
We invite you to explore our website and learn of the variety of courses, programs and resources available to both current and prospective students.
