Department of Economics

Economics Department Student Testimonials

"The study of economics has given me more than the ability to shift graphs around. Economics allows me to answer almost
any question I can ask and, more importantly, gives me guidelines to know what questions are relevant."
Paul Ryan

"In the beginning of my work at SCSU, economics was simply a course I needed to take to cover a general requirement.
But due to the faculty who are not only knowledgeable about the area, but also had a passion for the topics they taught,
it became a philosophy I live by daily." 
Patrick Jacobson-Schulte

“The Mathematical Economics degree has provided me with a strong foundation for graduate school. Whereas the Masters in Applied Economics not only teaches you the theory, but also the application of the theory in the real world.
With faculty who are willing to go out of their way to help students, it has definitely been a wonderful experience.”
Nikhil Joshi

"Economics has not only shown me how the world interacts, but has also allowed me to more efficiently construct and complete
my own personal goals. The analytical skills I've gained through economics will inevitably influence my future for the better.
Thank you to faculty and fellow students for enhancing my experience!"
Katherine Kotschevar

“I had a great experience with the economics department at St. Cloud State. I was made aware of the job opening
from an email I received from you, so I would like to thank you very much for the help.”
Matthew Evens
