Some of the current work by our students:
The Economics degree program works very closely with EOU’s Center for Rural Studies and the Regional Solutions Center to find student internships that provide valuable real-world experience (and sometimes they are paid!). Students generally do this in their senior year as a Capstone/Practicum experience.
