Prospective Students

Recent graduates who majored in economics are now involved in business, law, finance, medicine, international development, and other roles besides—from newspaper editor to lingerie magnate.

Economics is one of Wellesley’s most popular majors, and our courses are important to a number of interdisciplinary majors and programs as well. We pride ourselves on the rigor and diversity of our curriculum. You can find more about our courses and programs on this website.

The economics faculty includes both permanent and visiting members who are committed to excellence in undergraduate teaching and who have productive research careers. Read more about us in the Faculty section.

We hope you will use this website to begin your exploration of the study of economics here at Wellesley College, and follow up with us to learn more.
