Economics courses are offered in a wide range of topics including political economy, development, government (macroeconomic and microeconomic policy), business and finance, and co-operative businesses.

Note that we offer several on line courses each fall, winter, spring and summer for those of you who commute, live away from Amherst each summer or attend another college or university. We currently still have openings in our on line versions of Economics 203 and 204 this winter! Visit the UMass Continuing and Professional Education website to learn about costs, financial aid and how to enroll!

Due to high demand, enrollment in some face to face Economics courses during fall and spring semesters is temporarily restricted to primary majors in Economics to ensure that these students are able to satisfy critical major requirements. A chart detailing restrictions and release dates for the coming semester can be found on the Enrollment Information page.
