Welcome to the Department of Economics.  We are responsible for the economics major and economics minor. If you’re curious about the world around you – from the environment, politics, global markets, consumer behavior, or public policy and society – then a major or minor in economics may be the best area for you to study in the School of Business.  An economics degree combines the best of business and liberal arts and sciences courses to provide new perspectives and the communication, critical thinking, and quantitative skills needed to advance your career in a variety of fields and industries.

Please take a moment to see the quality and research expertise of our faculty.  All course syllabi can be found here as well.

If you are here for a campus visit and interested in meeting with  a professor to learn more about our programs, faculty, and where our alumni are working today, please contact us.
