Does anyone know if the econ department at JHU is good? Are there any newspaper articles or rankings about it? Thanks!

    JHU is best known for Biomed Engineering and International Relations. If you're looking for a strong econ department, I'd choose U Chicago or MIT (tied for 1st in rankings), or any of HYP. Even Pomona college's (ranked #6 in Liberal Arts econ dept is stronger than JHU's).

    George Mason has a better Econ. program than Hopkins.

    Actually the Economics major at Hopkins is quite strong, especially if you are looking for a true research-based form of study. Economics, Political Science, and International Studies at Hopkins are all considered top social science programs due to the research aspect of our institution. You should check-out the Department's website: http://www.econ.jhu.edu/undergraduate.html

    And if you visit campus, try to arrange to meet with faculty or staff in the Department or sit in on an econ class to get a real feel for the program.
