The mission of the Department of Economics is to teach students to be critical
thinkers and to use the discipline of economics to analyze and solve problems
associated with important economic, political and social issues.
Congratulations to the Class of 2020:
While we were not able to be together during the wonderful and very special Commencement weekend,
the faculty and staff of the Department of Economics are all very happy for our graduates, and wish them
the best of luck for the years ahead. In lieu of celebrating together, we have
prepared a video
with appearances by the faculty and each graduate.
