  • Course description
    The faculty of economics is a community of teacher-scholars engaged in theoretical, empirical and historical approaches to the study of the global economy and the varieties of capitalism extant in the world today. The faculty aims to create a collaborative teaching, learning and research environment emphasizing global awareness, environmental sensitivity and the synergies between theory and practice. Students majoring in economics are expected to acquire competencies in theory and empirical analyses, to adopt either a global or comparative concentration in their course work or to design their own major in consultation with two faculty members in economics. Individually designed majors will be required to take all core course requirements. Majors are required to participate in our lecture series and spend either a semester/year or summer studying abroad or in an internship in a major international city such as Washington, D.C. (International students are exempt from the study abroad/internship requirement. Other exemptions may be granted for compelling reasons.) Students are also encouraged to work with a faculty member in economics on at least one research project.
