The Department of Economics has over 20 permanent faculty members, with research and teaching interests that span a broad range of areas within micro- and macroeconomics, and the evaluation of public policy. Building on strengths in econometrics (Bayesian and classical), public choice, and empirical microeconomics particularly in transportation, energy, industrial organization, labor, and urban development, the Department offers both a B.A. degree program and a Ph.D. degree program. These web pages provide more information about those programs, the faculty and the Department's research activities.
