College of Arts & Sciences
Overview

The Department of Economics at Seton Hall will intellectually challenge you and convey to you a "universe of economic discourse" that is unbiased and rigorous. You will enhance your quantitative and analytical skills while studying a wide range of economic schools of thought, including Keynesian, post-Keynesian and Neo Classical. In addition to classroom instruction, the department also offers off-campus learning opportunities at select economic institutions in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C.

The curriculum is designed to help you better understand the economic relationship between businesses, households and government. The economics major consists of 33-36 required credits in economics, mathematics and statistics, including 15 credits in designated economics electives. Through these electives, you can explore interests in areas such as monetary, international, labor and quantitative economics.

In addition to the core business requirements, students must complete the required economics courses. Students must also complete the liberal arts and sciences core requirements along with liberal arts and general electives. Students are required to have at least a 2.5 GPA in their combined economics courses. Top students are invited to apply for membership in Seton Hall's Epsilon chapter of Omicron Delta Epsilon, the world's largest international honors society in economics.
