Offering Degree Programs that Provide Students with Technical and Analytical Skills and a Strong Work Ethic

The Department of Economics at The Catholic University of America offers three undergraduate majors. Each one provides different levels of flexibility, allowing interested students to combine studies in economics with other majors or minors, to prepare for graduate studies in economics, or to combine specializations in international economics and finance. All majors equip students with theoretical and practical knowledge to prepare students to graduate with job-ready skills.
