The opportunities for student research in economics are diverse, robust, and numerous. In addition to curriculum-based research, students can initiate semester-long independent research projects for credit, and many take advantage of grant-funded programs for summer research worldwide.

Economics faculty enlist students in research and scholarship endeavors–opportunities typically only available at the graduate school level. Our faculty members are proud of the students we mentor. They take ownership over their research projects and in many cases serve as first or second authors on published work. They also seek opportunities to present their work to professional audiences.

Some examples of recent student research include:

  • Miracle Iceland Now Sinking: Iceland's Rise and Precipitous Financial Collapse
  • Gender Differences in Migration from the Former East to West Germany after Reunification
  • Europe at a Crossroads: The Financial Crisis, Economic Nationalism, and European Integration
  • Plan Davidson: Comprehensive Build-Out Plan
