From a summer in Washington D.C. to recognition as an honors student, an economics major has a wide range of opportunities for involvement in jobs, internships, and societies, all of which are designed to enhance students' economics education. The department encourages participation in these programs, as well as studying abroad.
The Economics Society is an organization for all Trinity students interested in economics, even if they are not an economics major or minor. The Economics Society's activities include:
Omicron Delta Epsilon (ODE) is the international honor society in economics. It is one of the world's largest academic honor societies, having been created through the merger of Omicron Delta Gamma and Omicron Chi Epsilon. ODE has over 560 chapters in the United States, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, Mexico, Puerto Rico, South Africa, Egypt, and France.
The internships offer students hands-on experience in applying what they have learned in the classroom to real-world situations. Students are encouraged to discuss with faculty, on an individual basis, interest in an internship. Examples of job and internship opportunities include: Frost Bank, Central Texas Veterans Health Care System, Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, and Homeland Security Summer Internships.
