Opportunities in Economics

Department of Economics Undergraduate Seminar Series

Every quarter, the Department of Economics hosts a faculty seminar talk directly offered to undergraduate students. We encourage you to join us for our Quarterly seminar talks!

Undergraduate Research

Students completing undergraduate research can receive lower/upper division credit toward graduation requirements (180 unit requirement) but will not receive credit toward the Economics major. Typically 1-2 units per quarter (on rare occasion up to 4 units) are given for research credit as ECN 99/199; to learn more click here!

For advanced students there is the Economics Honors Program.

Undergraduate research assistant opportunities with faculty are not as great as in some of the physical sciences, due to the advanced nature of even basic economic research, and are arranged with those individual faculty who are able to use undergraduate research assistants.

Students may also get research experience through internships.

Undergraduate Womxn in Economics Society

The Undergraduate Womxn in Economics Society provides an empowering and encouraging space for undergraduate economics majors committed to equal representation in the field to meet, collaborate, network, and deepen their understanding and appreciation of the field.


Underrepresented Minorities in Economics Society

Underrepresented Minorities in Economics Society is intended to provide an inspiring and supportive space for URM students to connect, while deepening their appreciation and understanding of the field. If you are an economics major and are dedicated to the equal representation in the field, are invited to apply for the Underrepresented Minorities in Economics Society.  


Omicron Delta Epsilon Honor Society

Omicron Delta Epsilon (ODE) is the international honor society devoted to the field of Economics.

March Family Internship Fund

The March Family Internship Fund was established to support UC Davis economics students who participate in business-related internships. Roy March, the donor to the fund and graduate of UC Davis in economics, believes in the importance of internships as career-defining and even life-changing experiences. Applicants should research internship opportunities and address their interests and qualifications through the questions listed below.
