The Department of Economics is united in a common mission of providing the best undergraduate education possible.

We offer our students a flexible curriculum. Our majors enjoy close interactions with faculty members both inside and outside of the classroom.

Economics graduates enter rewarding careers. Our alumni have rung up an impressive list of accomplishments. Some of our students enter graduate programs, some continue in economics, while others branch into interrelated areas such as law, management, finance, labor relations, and government service.

If you are thinking about majoring in Economics and have some questions, feel free to contact us or stop by the Department for more information.
