Following guidance from Georgetown University and the District of Columbia, the Economics Department will be operating on a revised schedule:

  • Summer Courses for all undergraduate and graduate students will be conducted in a variety of modalities. Please consult the Georgetown University School of Continuing Studies Summer School website for further information.
  • The University plans to resume in-person instruction for the Fall 2021 Semester. We will continue to monitor pandemic and public health conditions to determine when this may be possible. Up-to-date information from the University on our Covid-19 status and response can be found here.
  • The Department seminar series in the Fall 2021 semester will all start in a virtual mode. We hope to resume in-person seminars during the semester at a date to be determined. The Fall 2021 Seminar Schedule will be posted here as soon as it becomes available.

If you would like to speak to Department of Economics staff during our business hours, Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. EST, please click here. Once you click on the Zoom link you will be added to our Zoom waiting room. A staff member should be with you momentarily. If we are unable to speak to you at that time, please email, and a staff member will schedule a Zoom meeting with you. Thank you and stay safe.
