The Department of Economics has as its mission to increase the number of American and foreign students trained with an understanding of economic problems and solutions confronting the United States and developing nations. Special attention is devoted to problems of and solutions to the underprivileged African Americans and residents of Third World nations. The Department is committed to strong undergraduate and graduate programs, and to ensuring that students have a sufficiently broad background in theoretical and analytical economics to be competitive. The Economics Program leads to the degrees of B.A. and M.A. in Economics.
The undergraduate economics curriculum is a traditional liberal arts program, which prepares students for graduate studies as well as employment in government or private industry. Economics majors pursue studies designed to acquaint them with the theoretical foundations of modern economic analysis, analytical tools, and applications to contemporary issues.
The Master of Arts degree in
economics offers the opportunity to engage in the studies of
contemporary economic issues. The curriculum also provides an
innovative approach to the study of orthodox theories. Provisions
are made to develop knowledge and understanding of urban affairs
and economic development, not only from the traditional point
of view, but also from that of minority people and developing
countries of the Third World. Attuned to current problems of
American and world economies, the program should be of interest
to students wishing to pursue graduate study in economics that
is current, meaningful, and fulfilling.
