The Joint Degree Program in Economics


Economics majors accepted into the joint degree program will benefit from the integration of the breadth offered by a William & Mary liberal arts education and the depth and progression offered from a St Andrews degree. In addition, majors will benefit from the complementary strengths of the two departments. While both economic departments have strengths in applied economic theory, the Economics Department at St Andrews has particular strengths in the areas of dynamic macroeconomics, finance, household economics, competition and innovation and climate change. St Andrews also supports two research centers - the Centre for Dynamic Macroeconomic Analysis and the Centre for Research in Industry, Enterprise, Finance and the Firm. The Department of Economics at William & Mary has particular strengths in the area of health, experimental and international economics. In addition, William & Mary economics faculty are highly visible members of The Schroeder Center for Health Policy, the Thomas Jefferson Program in Public Policy, and the Reves Center for International Studies.

Individuals enrolling in the economics degree will take the following program.
