Why Study Economics at New College?
As an economics student at New College, you can expect to be exposed to theories and concepts that underlie the discipline. Working closely with faculty, you will also be able to design a plan of study that matches your academic interests and goals and that provides hands-on experience by way of internships, study abroad opportunities and foreign language training. Both in the classroom, as well as through tutorials and independent study projects (ISPs), you'll be challenged to explore, research and defend your ideas and to acknowledge and critique those of your classmates. And although we do not have a Business AOC at New College, our faculty offer courses in entrepreneurship, finance and other critical areas that help students prepare for graduate level work or careers in wide variety of fields.
This intense, non-competitive environment is one of the keys to our success in placing our students in leading graduate school programs. In recent years, New College graduates have been admitted to graduate and business school programs at Babson College, University of Florida, University of California at Berkeley, Carnegie-Mellon University, Duke University, Rochester University, Vanderbilt University, Tulane University, Stanford University and a host of others, many of them with full funding for their graduate studies.
