The economics department has been affected greatly by the public health emergency facing our region and the rest of the world. In accordance with orders issued by the Governor of California, Santa Clara County officials, and the SJSU President, our department has suspended all in-person classes for the rest of the semester, and has converted them to remote learning formats.
The economics office was closed on March 16, and will remain closed until further notice. However, our terrific staff are available to help please see our staff contact page. If you have questions related to one of your courses, please contact your course instructor. For help with undergraduate and graduate advising, please see our advising page for information, and for General Education advising, you may contact the ACCESS Success Center.
Please stay up to date by checking SJSU's Health Advisories website.
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.
