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.
