The economics major in Fordham College offers students the opportunity to develop a clear and concise way of analyzing a wide range of issues. The discipline draws from history, philosophy, political science and mathematics.  It helps prepare students for a wide array of professional careers. Good teaching is a top priority of the Economics Department. Class size is kept small.  Required, as well as several monetary, financial and international courses are offered each semester.
