Economics draws upon history, political science, philosophy, and mathematics to analyze topics ranging from how firms, consumers, and governments make sound decisions to societal issues such as unemployment, discrimination, inflation, crime, and environmental decay. It is a challenging discipline that offers students a clear and concise way of thinking about the ordinary business of life and a preparation for a wide array of professional careers.

We offer undergraduate majors in Economics, Mathematics and Economics, and International Political Economy, as well as a number of minors, a one year M.A. Program, and a part-time and a fully funded full-time Ph.D. program.
