Omicron Delta Epsilon
Highly qualified majors have the opportunity to participate in the Department’s Honors Program. This involves completing a research paper under the guidance of a faculty committee. Wake Forest has a chapter of Omicron Delta Epsilon, the international honor society in economics. Each year we recognize our most accomplished majors at the local chapter’s induction.
HISTORY OF OΔE
Omicron Delta Gamma was founded in 1915 by John Commons, University of Wisconsin, and Frank Taussig, Harvard University, through the union of the economics societies of their universities.
Omicron Delta Epsilon has 578 chapters in the United States, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, Mexico, Puerto Rico, South Africa, Egypt, France and United Arab Emirates. It was formed by the merger in 1963 of Omicron Delta Gamma and Omicron Chi Epsilon
The objectives of Omicron Delta Epsilon are recognition of scholastic attainment, the honoring of outstanding achievements in economics, and the establishment of closer ties between students and faculty in economics. Undergraduate candidates for election must have completed at least four economics courses and earned an overall GPA of 3.0 and 3.3 in Economics.
