Economics

Economics is a social science concerned with how consumers and firms respond to incentives, how they interact through trade in markets, and how the whole economy works, in terms of productivity, unemployment, and growth. The Department of Economics at William and Mary offers a diverse and flexible undergraduate curriculum to a large and growing number of majors, dozens of minors, and hundreds of students interested in international relations, public policy, and environmental science. Faculty members are active researchers who develop economic theories and apply them using advanced econometric and experimental techniques. Students can work closely with individual faculty on research collaborations ranging from honors projects, independent study, and in some cases, coauthored publications.
