If you answered yes to any of these questions, then Economics 390 or Economics 391 is the courses for you. Econ 390 and 391 provide excellent opportunities to obtain on-the-job experience while applying the skills and knowledge you develop in your Economics classes. Our students have held a wide variety of intern positions at the State Legislature, Merill Lynch, Bank of Hawaii, Hawaiian Airlines, First Insurance, the State Department of Business Economic Development & Tourism, UHERO, and many other agencies and firms.

These courses are intended for Economics majors and minors seeking practical experience using their Economics training. The focus of Economics 390 is short-term (1 semester) practical experience. Economics 391 requires a 2-semester commitment and provides more supervision. Both courses require two short papers and Econ 391 requires an oral presentation. A minimum 3.0 GPA is required to enroll in Econ 391.
