More than an academic department: a learning community.



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!

Black women are underrepresented in economics, which is bad for everyone. Many black women who might want to study economics are effectively prevented from doing so at a young age. Research by the economist Dania V. Francis provides evidence that, all else being equal, black girls are disproportionately recommended less by teachers for Advanced Placement calculus (a gateway course for taking economics), STEM classes and college preparation in general. Dr. Francis is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics at the University of Massachusetts Boston. She will be delivering a seminar as part of our Spring Seminar Series on March 27, 2020. https://economics.colostate.edu/events/department-of-economics-spring-2020-seminar-series-2/ https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/30/opinion/economics-black-women.html
