The Economics Department challenges students to actively engage in contemporary issues. Students sharpen their analytical skills in courses focusing on monetary policy, finance, global poverty, health economics, environmental economics, and the emerging field of behavioral economics.



Both inside the classroom and out in the real world, students encounter plenty of possibilities to learn more about economics.
