Resources & Opportunities

Sweet Briar students have the opportunity to apply economics in unique ways:

  1. The Economics of Wine course makes use of our proximity to Virginia’s wine country and the vineyard on campus.
  2. Through Sweet Briar’s Leadership in Sustainable Agriculture & Food Systems program, students interested in environmental economics have a unique opportunity to expand their understanding of the field through participation in our greenhouse and apiary.
  3. Participation in community talks and interaction with guest scholars through our Women in Economics series.
