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 2019/Spring 2020 edition of the CLA Magazine is now available for your viewing pleasure! The Liberal Arts Magazine showcases stories from faculty, students, and alumni on universal topics. In this issue, we apply the lenses of the liberal arts to place and space. Our department's article highlights the work of Professor Stephan Weiler and REDI. Identifying rural solutions to urban needs, and vice versa, has been a big part of Professor Weiler's work for decades. With the Regional Economic Development Institute, Weiler and others are examining the many ways to bridge the urban-rural divide. Whether it's malting barley, charter school supply and demand, or poverty and incarceration, rural and urban communities can learn from and benefit one another and provide opportunities for more people to succeed. https://magazine.libarts.colostate.edu/article/finding-economic-connections-in-the-urban-rural-divide/

This weekend many of our faculty and graduate students are attending the annual ASSA meeting in San Diego, CA. The AEA, in conjunction with 61 associations in related disciplines known as the Allied Social Science Associations (ASSA), hold an annual three-day meeting each January to present papers on general economics topics. Over 13,450 of the best minds in economics assemble to network and celebrate new achievements in economic research. More information about the conference, including an online program can be found here: https://www.aeaweb.org/conference/about

aeaweb.org ASSA is the premiere event to expose your work with colleagues and hear about the latest research emerging in the field. Economists from around the world take advantage of this unique opportunity to share, collaborate, and learn…all in one place.
