Undergraduate students earn Departmental Honors from the Economics Department by completing their upper division economics courses with a 3.5 or better GPA, and writing a research paper with the supervision of a faculty adviser.

These papers are meant as capstone projects, where students have the opportunity to apply the knowledge they have obtained from their studies to a problem of significant intellectual or social importance. We are posting them on the web because we want to disseminate the results of these projects as broadly as possible. Supporting documentation will be posted at http://economics.uoregon.edu/honors/.
