From undergraduate studies to PhDs, UW offers economics degree programs and finance degree programs that provide students with the academic background that enables them to succeed in a variety of career options.

The department has produced a world-class program by pulling together scientists with a common purpose — how to use economics and finance to create more well-being while protecting our environment and natural resources.
  •  The department offers undergraduate and master's degrees in economics and finance (including a dual master's in economics and finance combined), as well as a PhD degree in economics.
