2020-2021 Job Market Candidates

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

  • Courses for all undergraduate and graduate students will begin in virtual mode. All class materials will be available asynchronously to accommodate students in remote locations.
  • We plan to introduce some in-person course elements as soon as health conditions permit. 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.
  • All scheduled seminars will take place on-line. See the individual class and seminar listings for details.

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, econdesk@georgetown.edu and a staff member will schedule a Zoom meeting with you. Thank you and stay safe.
