Resources for Prospective Students

If you're preparing to pursue a degree in economics, the faculty and staff at DU are ready to support you along the way.

We were attracted to DU because it has programs that are strong and [that] attracted students that are very service-minded. That has created quite a bit of cohesion and is also why we continue to function at a really high level.

Why Economics?

DU's Department of Economics is one of the few in the nation that approaches economics from a critical perspective. That means your academic coursework will be informed not only by traditional perspectives and scholarly insights on domestic and global economic issues, but also by a broad range of ideas and concepts that challenge accepted systems and propose alternative solutions to some of our society's most pressing economic challenges by employing historical, interdisciplinary, quantitative and qualitative methods and tools.
