More than an academic department: a learning community.

Welcome

The goal of the Department of Economics is to build a learning community that supports the intellectual development and professional aspirations of both students and faculty. Our undergraduate and graduate programs offer courses that cover an unusually wide range of economic thought, including neo-classical economics, Keynesian economics, institutional economics, Marxian economics and feminist economics.
We want our students to become critical thinkers who understand the debates about economic methodology and policy as well as the techniques of economic analysis.

Our faculty members have active research agendas and substantial scholarly records; nonetheless, our students are our first priority. We constantly strive to improve our teaching programs, and our faculty have won many teaching and advising awards. Our PhD program provides many opportunities for students to interact with faculty and to work with them on research projects. We have had an excellent track record in job placements for our graduate students. The department chair is always glad to meet prospective and current students, and to answer their questions – stop by any time!

The Winter 2020/Spring 2021 CLA digital magazine, Lenses of the Liberal Arts: Health, is now available for your viewing pleasure! Check out our department's story, "Lead Exposure Study Shows How Economics Leads to Understanding Health at Another Level," featuring recent PhD graduate Dr. Christopher Keyes and Professor Sammy Zahran. The article describes the relationship found between a region’s level of lead and the degree to which the people who grew up there suffered adverse health and cognitive effects from elevated levels of lead in their blood.
