The Economics major is one of the most popular at Stanford. The major provides a rigorous toolkit for thinking about the economy and about economic policy. It promotes an active learning approach to economics in which students think about real problems in an analytically rigorous way. In addition, the major aims to teach students how to put the acquired skills to use in their own research. Students will find a cumulative and hierarchical body of knowledge laid out in a structured series of courses. This creates a foundation which the student can build on and apply to many areas. Economics is also a popular subject for students in other disciplines.
