About Economics

The Economics Department at San José State University has one core mission: to train both graduate and undergraduate students in the economic way of thinking and market process. Our internationally recognized faculty will guide your exploration of economic theory, equipping you with the analytical decision-making skills to prepare you to succeed in careers in business, public policy, government service, data management, as well as providing a solid foundation for future doctoral studies in economics.

At the undergraduate level, we offer both bachelor of arts and bachelor of sciences degrees, as well as an economics minor. At the graduate level, we offer an MA program in Economics, with an optional concentration in Applied Economics. Because we offer a terminal Masters degree program, we are uniquely equipped to prepare students to face the business world.

Students at San José State University also have the opportunity to participate in research Economic Workshops and seminars, as well as attend our Provocative Lecture Series
