Help Support the WWU Economics Students with a Gift Today!
The Economics Department offers 8 different options under the Bachelor of Arts degree. Combinations with economics include: Accounting, Environmental Studies, Finance, Mathematics, Political Science, Philosophy and Social Studies. We currently have around 240 majors and 23 faculty.
A degree in economics can lead to a number of career paths. Western graduates in economics have found success in business, as advisors and researchers, as well as in education. Other graduates have gone on to professional schools such as MBA programs or law school. Employment as a professional economist often requires further study and a number of Western economics graduates have gone on to pursue a Ph.D. in economics or a related field.
An undergraduate degree in economics is a fantastic way to develop a solid foundation of critical thinking and analytical problem solving regardless of what field a graduate may choose later in life.
Your gift will help to provide the best possible learning experience for our students by providing student scholarships; funding student events and research; sending students to economics conferences (conference fees, lodging, transportation); hosting student club events and guest speakers; our year-end award presentation picnic and BBQ.
