What Even is Economics?
What: The event will start by Prof James Roberts, Chair of Duke Economics, talking about the myriad of different fields in economics and how interest in niche intersections translates to opportunities in the real world. The event will then transition into an informal chat with current Duke Economics majors who are pursuing their interests in different intersections. Majors will talk about their interests, their experiences in and outside of Duke, and general advising for underclassmen and high-school seniors. The final 30 minutes will be left open for any questions from the audience and for students to interact with the panelists while grabbing some pizza.
