CARE was officially started in the Fall of 2017.  We currently have 27 members comprised of 3 freshmen, 6 sophomores, 8 juniors and 10 seniors.

The fundamental features of the CARE program require members to take the theory and econometrics courses at the advanced (honors) level.  Specifically, by the time they graduate with the Bachelor degree, members have taken 302H (advanced intermediate microeconomic theory), 304H (advanced intermediate macroeconomic theory) and 306H (advanced econometrics).  The advantage for CARE members is that freshman and sophomore members who are not in the University’s Schreyers Honors College are allowed to register for these honors courses while juniors and seniors who have already taken the regular offerings of these courses are permitted to audit these courses.

CARE members who successfully finish the above advanced theory/econometrics courses have access to first year courses offered in our Masters and PhD programs.

CARE members are also in very competitive positions to apply for the department’s REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) program.  This is a highly competitive program in which successful applicants are matched with a faculty member and help with his/her research project. 

Each CARE member has an assigned faculty member in their field of interest.  The faculty mentor meets regularly with their mentee and provides counsel and guidance with respect to courses that are useful for graduate school and advice in the application to various graduate programs.
