Current Cohorts

Academic Cohorts

Oeconomica’s Academic Cohorts provide an opportunity for students to gain exposure to economics research and explore different subfields within the discipline. Cohorts are led by 1-2 seasoned economics students and are theme driven. In the fall, students will learn about topics related to their cohort’s theme and be introduced to literature related to the cohort’s theme. They will then work on an economics research project related to this theme for the next two quarters. To this end, participants will be taught programming languages such as R, statistical analysis techniques, along with elements of data science, including data manipulation and visualization.
