Examples of Honors Theses in Economics:

To earn Honors in Economics, students must have an Economics GPA of at least 3.5 and satisfactorily pass (see below) ECON 300. This is a single course that meets for two-semesters and counts as two course units. ECON 300 counts as only one course toward the major, and may count toward one of the four 200-level course requirements. Consequently, honors majors have eleven economics course units. (The Economics GPA is based on economics courses.)

The honors program offers an opportunity for independent research, creativity, and achievement. It is designed to encourage a more intensive study of economics than is required for the normal major, with course and research work of exceptional quality. Honors students submit their theses in writing and present them during the Honors Research Symposium during Spring Quarter. The honors program requires:


Featured Undergraduate Students | Philosophy

Students admitted to graduate standing in the department are expected to have a strong background in college-level economics, mathematics, and statistics. Preparation ordinarily consists of a college major in economics, a year-long calculus sequence that includes multivariate analysis, a course in linear algebra, and a rigorous course in probability and statistics. When deemed appropriate, a student may be required to complete the necessary background preparation at Stanford. All students take a common core curriculum at the outset and later branch out into the desired fields of specialization.

Featured Undergraduate Students

A good Masters or honors degree (first class or second upper) in Economics is required for admission to the PhD programme directly. Students with a strong honors degree (first class or second upper) in other fields with strong quantitative background, such as mathematics, statistics, physics, engineering, operations research, etc, may be considered for direct entry to the PhD programme as well.

Statistical Techniques | Statistical Mechanics

The department does not admit students who plan to terminate their graduate study with the M.A. degree. Students must be currently enrolled in a Ph.D. program at Stanford before adding the Economics M.A. degree. Economics students may, but need not, elect to add this degree in addition to their current Ph.D. degree after they have been enrolled at Stanford for at least one quarter. A master's option is also available to currently enrolled Ph.D. candidates from other departments.

Students may also apply to the M.P.P

To use transfer credit in partial satisfaction of the requirements, the student must obtain written consent from the department's Director of Undergraduate Study, who establishes the amount of credit to be granted toward the department requirements (see the Information Book for Undergraduate Economics Majors). Students must have completed all Stanford prerequisites for approved transfer credit courses in order to use those courses towards the Economics major.

Undergraduate | Public Policy Program

In order to add this degree to their program plan, current Ph.D. students should submit a Graduate Authorization Petition via Axess and submit an M.A. program proposal form to the Student Services Manager for approval. Students must have completed the Stanford requirements for a B.A. in Economics or approximately equivalent training. Since students are required to take some of the same courses as Ph.D. candidates, similar preparation in mathematics and statistics generally is expected before the petition to add the M.A. will be approved.
