The Economics Major and Graduate School

Since 2001, 37% of TCNJ Economics graduates have chosen to continue their studies at the graduate level. The most common choice for TCNJ Economics graduates is law school (19%). Economics graduates have enrolled in both local (e.g., Rutgers-Newark, Rutgers-Camden, Seton Hall) a well as nationally ranked law schools (Duke, Michigan, Penn, Washington University).

In addition to law schools, Economics graduates have enrolled in MBA programs (7%), Ph.D. programs (6%), and M.A. programs (6%). The M.A. enrollments include programs in public policy (e.g., Georgetown, Rutgers-Bloustein), M.A. Economics programs (e.g., Boston University), and an M.S. program in human resources (e.g., Villanova).  Enrollments in Ph.D. programs have primarily been in Economics (e.g., Rutgers-New Brunswick, American) but one student enrolled in a Math Ph.D. (Texas). MBA program enrollments have included standard programs (e.g., New York University) as well as dual degree programs (e.g., Pittsburgh, Temple). One student enrolled in dental school.
