Faculty in the department have a wide range of research interests, as well as extensive experience in government policymaking, consulting, and industry.

Economics courses provide a basis for an understanding of economic structures, a wide range of domestic and international issues, and trends in the economic life of modern societies. These courses offer training in analysis of economic problems as an aid to the evaluation of economic policies. The minor in behavioral economics addresses the emerging importance of understanding market behavior and the heuristics and biases that impact decision-making in the context of uncertainty.

The department encourages internships, which enable students to combine their education with practical, paid work experience in their career field. For additional details, consult your academic advisor and the Office of Internships and Employer Relations at 203.932.7491.
