Here’s a list of econ courses you can check out: https://www.amherst.edu/course_scheduler?tab=search&result=1

And here’s the econ department website: https://www.amherst.edu/academiclife/departments/economics (feel free to email professors to ask about specific questions)

I haven’t personally taken econ courses at Amherst (yet), but from what I’ve heard, if you get the right professor, it’s a pretty strong department, so econ is one of the most popular majors here. I heard that a lot of the content is more conceptual rather than being practical skills, and that most students wanting to get into finance tend to take econ.
