STEM Recognition for Economics Major

29 March 2021

The economics major enjoys STEM designation by US Citizenship and Immigration Services, reflecting the mathematical nature of our major.  This means that if you are an international student who graduates with a major in economics, you may apply for up to 36 months of optional practical training (OPT).  Experience has shown us that this change can make a big difference in the ability of international students to secure employment in the U.S. after graduation.  For more information, contact Liz Cody, Director of International Life.
