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!
