ECON 461 - Senior Research Experience


3 credits
This course is designed as a capstone research experience for students in their senior year of the economics program. Students will craft a research question and complete a semester-long investigation on the topic of their choice. Students will refine their analytical and research skills as they review related literature, design well-specified econometric models, create and manage large data sets, apply regression analysis and appropriate diagnostic tests, and form accurate conclusions and policy prescriptions based on the sound application of both economic theory and statistical techniques. Technical writing for the economics discipline, project management, and presentation skills are a key focus of the course. Students will leave the experience having completed an ambitious project that potential employers will value. The senior exit examination is administered as part of the course.
