Learning Goals and Outcomes for Graduating Students 

Economics Department Mission Statement

"We strive to teach students the foundations of economic analysis within a liberal arts culture that celebrates the value of open and critical inquiry, promotes intellectual empathy, rewards analytical rigor, and developes a sense of both local and global citizenship. We seek to fulfill this mission by exposing our students to the broad spectrum of economic thought that animates our discipline, by encouraging the thoughtful application of theory to current issues and economic problems entrenched in the institutation structures of contemporary society, and by fostering an environment that values scholary research, intellectual curiosity, and respectful engagement with alternative points of view."
