Honors Program

A good understanding of economics is increasingly necessary for success in today's society. Across fields as diverse as law, finance, medicine, business, politics, and environmental science, the tools of economic analysis are frequently employed to help solve complex problems. The Honors Program in economics provides solid preparation for students planning to attend graduate school in economics as well as for those planning advanced study in other fields. For those students planning to enter the workforce directly after graduation, the program will develop the research, analytical and writing skills that employers desire. The program offers highly motivated students the opportunity for an individualized and challenging curriculum. Upon successful completion of the program students are awarded their Boston College degrees with the designation "Honors in Economics."

Students in the Honors Program are invited to attend a variety of seminars, lectures, dinners, and social gatherings as part of the program. An opportunity to interact with faculty in non-academic settings is encouraged through this social aspect of the program.
