Economics Department Initiative
IPPSOJ Launch Party, October 2019
Inequality, Poverty, Power, and Social Justice
The Initiative provides one cohesive intellectual and communal framework that promotes critical, transdisciplinary research, dialogue, and action on the causes and consequences of diverse forms of inequality, poverty, and injustice as they manifest themselves in Lancaster and other cities and regions worldwide. The initiative especially aims to explore how dynamics of power generate and reinforce economic and social exclusion and injustice. Activities are organized through the curriculum, student research, and a public forum.

Overview of Economics at F&M
Our curriculum better prepares F&M students with a broader realm of knowledge from which to draw throughout their careers. It also distinguishes our majors as they enter the professional world or graduate school, leading to top-level placements.
We offer truly impressive opportunities to work closely with faculty members in highly specialized courses and one-to-one tutorials.
Seniors who have exhibited outstanding scholarship gain access to independent research and study opportunities that can lead to departmental honors and publication in leading journals.
Our program is supported by an active, student-run Economics Club.
An economics major is valuable to any number of different professional disciplines in which critical thinking, analysis, and writing are emphasized.
While most graduates of the program enter the business world, many go on to graduate programs in medicine, law, or economics at such institutions as Oxford, Columbia, NERA, Harvard University, Yale University, University of Pennsylvania, University of California at Berkeley, Cornell University, Michigan State University, and the University of Virginia.
