Curriculum Changes - Department of Economics

The Undergraduate Program in the Department of Economics is undergoing substantial changes this semester that you should be aware of.  We have revised our Bachelor of Arts degree requirements and are now offering a Bachelor of Science degree. 

All students who officially declare ECON as their major after the end of the Fall 2015 schedule adjustment period (which ended on Sept 14th) will be required to complete the new major requirements and will need to select either the BA or BS track.

Students who declared ECON as their major for Fall 2015 or earlier have the option to complete the “old major requirements” which were in place when you declared, OR you may choose to switch to the new curriculum and complete either the BA or BS track. 

For detailed information regarding the new major requirements visit

Current ECON majors who are interested in switching to the new curriculum should visit for detailed instructions on how to make the switch. 

Important Note: If you are planning on graduating in May 2016, it is likely in your best interest to complete the old major requirements.

WorldQuant Finance Research Consultant Program



Research Analyst Position at the New York Fed

Each fall the Federal Reserve Bank of New York recruits Research Analysts to work closely with the economists in our Research group starting the following fall. 

Research Analysts play an integral role in both the policy and research functions of the Research and Statistics Group. Our economists, whose specialties include banking and payment systems, capital markets, international economics, macroeconomics, and microeconomics, work closely with Research Analysts. Upon leaving the Fed, Research Analysts choose to pursue either graduate school, and are consistently accepted by top programs, or a wide variety of public and private sector opportunities. In recent years, our RAs have gone on to pursue PhDs in Economics or Finance at MIT, Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, University of Chicago, UC Berkeley, and Wharton, among others. Aside from economics, previous RAs have also gone to law and public policy programs at Harvard Kennedy School, Princeton, Yale, and others.

We seek candidates who have records of superior scholarship and academic curiosity. Research Analysts usually come from strong economics, policy, mathematics, or computer science backgrounds, though a major in one of these fields is not a necessity. Successful candidates often have previous research experience, and many are considering careers in economic research, public policy, or other related fields.

In addition, we seek candidates from a wide range of backgrounds that are typically underrepresented in economics. It is important to us that we succeed in recruiting a diverse cohort of research analysts each year. Thus we encourage many students with varying experiences and backgrounds to apply.

Applications are being accepted now until October 15 at

The Research Analyst position is an unparalleled opportunity to work with a world-class research and policy team.

Note: Information about citizenship and eligibility requirements are provided in the job posting at

Intern with A Wider Circle

A Wider Circle is now in its 14th year of service to the most vulnerable children and adults in our nation’s capital region. The average family size of those we serve is 4 and the average annual income – from all sources – is $12,000. We serve the neediest of the needy. We have big goals for being a force in the movement to end poverty and have grown considerably in each of our 14 years.

The mission of A Wider Circle is simple: to end poverty for one individual and one family after another. We work in partnership with those we serve and with those seeking to help to ensure that every child and adult has the chance to succeed and the opportunity to live well.

A Wider Circle is a grassroots 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that brings on 10-15 interns each semester to work out of our Center for Community Service in Silver Spring. Interns play a significant role here; in addition to direct service and education internships, there are business, marketing, research, and strategic planning internships available.

We request that interns commit to working at least 10 hours per week (the average is 10 - 20, but some work more). Students interested in our internships may contact us at

If you have any questions about internship opportunities with us or about our work in general, please contact me any time at 301608.3504 or at .
