Economics

Economics is taught across the curriculum. We apply economic theory to a broad array of issues, including poverty and economic inequality; public policy; alternatives to capitalism; environmental policy; corporate behavior; social equity; unemployment; and social movements.

We emphasize economic history and inequality by race, class, and gender, and focus on multiple schools of economic theory from neoclassical and Keynesian theory to feminist economics and Marxist political economy.

You’ll have opportunities to study foundations of economic theory and their implications for economic policy, and the major debates among economists about such issues as the proper role of government and how to best end poverty and other problems.
