A degree in economics can prepare you for almost any career. That's because what you learn - critical thinking, an understanding of our economy, how to analyze and unravel complex problems - is crucial in everything from business to government to nonprofit work. Many of our students also pursue graduate studies in economics, business and law. Choose from engaging, small-size classes that enhance your quantitative and analytical skills, and continue learning through off-campus opportunities at select economic institutions in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C.
What Makes Seton Hall Special?
Seton Hall student Joe Donato talks about what sets the University apart: academic excellence, diversity, the dynamic energy on campus — and more.
Our curriculum is designed to help students understand the economic relationship between businesses, households and government. You’ll take classes in economics, math and statistics, and zoom in on specific interests through economics electives — including monetary, international, labor and quantitative economics. You’ll also study a wide range of economic schools of thought, from Keynesian to post-Keynesian to neo-classical. Top students may apply for membership in Seton Hall's Epsilon chapter of Omicron Delta Epsilon, the world’s largest international honors society in economics.
Many of our full-time business faculty members have attended top Ph.D. programs and are in demand as lecturers, consultants and media experts. Often partnering with students to undertake relevant research projects, they transform the concepts of business theory into practice, offering hands-on instruction and preparation for real-world success.
As one of the country's leading Catholic universities, Seton Hall has been developing students in mind, heart and spirit since 1856. Home to nearly 10,000 undergraduate and graduate students, Seton Hall is a place that nurtures compassionate leaders who are prepared to make a difference in the world.
Seton Hall offers all the advantages of a large research university - a national reputation; challenging academic programs; notable alumni; state-of-the-art facilities; renowned faculty; and extensive opportunities for internships, research and scholarship - with all the benefits of a small, supportive and nurturing environment.
