Outside the classroom, all Economics faculty members pursue active research agendas. They present their work at national and regional economics conferences. Top general and field-specific economics journals publish their findings.
The Department has close ties with AidData, the Schroeder Center for Health Policy, and the graduate Program in Public Policy which provide ample opportunities for faculty to engage in policy-oriented research.
Every semester, a diverse array of visiting scholars and W&M faculty make research presentations as part of the Department's faculty seminar series. Seminars will take place in Tyler Hall in the afternoon. Keep an eye on our Events Calendar for upcoming presentations.
Many undergraduate economics majors are also engaged in the research process. Faculty and student collaborations have lead to coauthored conference papers and publications.
