Several research opportunities are available to undergraduate economics majors. Working closely with a faculty member in connection with a special studies course or a senior honors essay provides the student with the opportunity for an in-depth exploration of a topic of the student’s choosing.
The College of Arts and Letters provides financial support for undergraduate research through its Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program. Students may also become involved with faculty research through employment as an undergraduate research assistant. For more information, please contact Mary Flannery, the Director of Undergraduate Studies, firstname.lastname@example.org.

The power of economics, said Greg Duffy ’15, is that the intangible becomes tangible. Duffy, who majored in economics and sang in an a capella group at Notre Dame, now uses that power to help connect artists with new audiences as a research analyst at the music-streaming service Pandora.
