The graduate economics program involves topics ranging from microeconomics, macroeconomics, and econometrics to subject areas chosen from labor economics, international economics and the economics of industry. There are approximately 100 graduate degree candidates in economics, with roughly three-quarters in the PhD program. While a majority of students are from the United States, there are international students from many parts of the world. For information on international student enrollment at GW, visit the university's Office of Institutional Research and Planning.
Most students plan careers with government, international agencies, or consulting firms located in the Washington, DC area. The department maintains an active placement service, which aids in these career aspirations. See the University's Student Services, Organizations and Groups page for more information.
