Get Involved

All students are encouraged to get involved in the MSU community by joining clubs or groups that interest you.  They can be great ways to feel more connected to MSU, explore fields of interest, and gain leadership experience.   In addition to the Econ Scholars Program click here, below are a few ways to further explore economics.

Michigan State University Student Economics Association (MSU SEA) provides professional development opportunities for students interested in the field of economics.  Email msuecon@gmail.com or see their websites (http://msuecon.wix.com/msusea, www.facebook.com/msusea) for more information

Women and Minorities in Economics (WAMIE) is an inclusive club at MSU whose mission is to challenge misconceptions about what economics is and who economists are.  It promotes diversity within the economics field by discussing topics in economics, having resume building/career development workshops, and more. Email wamie.msu@gmail.com or see www.facebook.com/wamiemsu for more information

Students can participate in the MSU Fed Challenge for course credit (EC 332) or as an extracurricular activity.  Students will study the U.S. Economy through the lens of the U.S. Central Bank and learn about the Federal Open Market Committee, the policy making group that makes interest rate decisions to foster economic strength and stability.  A subset of the MSU Fed Challenge group is selected each fall to participate in the College Fed Challenge at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago.  Information sessions are available at the beginning of each semester.  Email doblasma@msu.edu or see www.msufedchallenge.weebly.com for more information.

For opportunities to get involved beyond the Department of Economics, see the Registered Student Organization (RSO) webpage or the Associated Students of Michigan State University (ASMSU) webpage.
