Department of Economics

Welcome to the Economics Department!

Economics courses emphasize critical analysis, practical problem solving, effective communication, and the appropriate use of technology.

The Economics Department excels at serving those who benefit from personalized attention, such as first-generation college students. We do this by offering small classes taught primarily by full-time faculty who emphasize active and intensive learning experiences and theory-based practical applications.

Students may major in economics without pursuing a specialized concentration; or they may pursue a concentration in Business Economics, Public Policy Economics, or Quantitative Economics.

  • The concentration in Business Economics is recommended for students who tend to seek employment in the private sector and/or pursue an MBA degree.

  • The concentration in Public Policy Economics is recommended for students who intend to seek employment in government or with other policy-oriented organizations.

  • The concentration in Quantitative Economics is recommended for students who intend to seek employment in economic consulting or forecasting and/or pursue graduate study in economics, law school, or other related fields.
