For 2017, U.S. News & World Report ranks our graduate program in Economics at #72 in the country.


The BA provides undergraduates with comprehensive exposure to the principles and tools of economics. BS degrees with specializations in economic analysis, financial economics, and economic policy analysis offer more focused curricula for undergraduates planning advanced study or careers in economics, financial analysis, or government.

At the graduate level we offer an accelerated 4 + 1 MA, MA and PhD degree. The PhD graduate program offers specializations in econometrics, environmental economics, labor/development economics, macroeconomics and public economics under the supervision of nationally recognized scholars on its faculty. Recipients of MA and PhD degrees pursue a wide variety of careers in higher education, economic forecasting, research, and policy analysis.

Housed on the 9th, 10th and 11th floors of the Library Tower, the department is currently home to 26 full-time faculty. We offer approximately 75 undergraduate courses annually to 1,000+ majors and hundreds of non-majors. We also have about 60+ graduate students in residence.
