Course offerings

As you can see from the fall schedule, the department is offering electives in Trade, Labor, and Evolutionary Economics.  The tentative plan for the spring of 2013 is to offer Econometrics (Dr. Yilmaz), American Economic History (Dr. Pluta), and Business Applications of Economics (Dr. Clements).  If you have any questions or feedback, contact your friendly department chair.  We always strive to meet student needs to the greatest extent possible (but please bear in mind that it is rarely possible to satisfy everyone’s preferences simultaneously).

Economics club 2012!

It’s time to start planning the next Economics Club event.  One suggestion we had last semester was to talk about the controversy surrounding the Fed: what the criticisms are, and what alternatives there may be to the status quo.  Any thoughts about events, topics, dates or times, post to Facebook and we can have a discussion there.
