The Economics Department teaches the social science of economics within the framework of a liberal arts education. The program develops analytical, quantitative, writing, and oral expression skills useful for leaders who use economics rather than teaching only technical economic tools.
We advise students on course work and on professional careers and graduate study, engage in research and professional activity to enhance our scholarship and teaching, guide and work with students on research projects and seek outlets for that research, and participate in public lectures and forums on economic issues.
We invite you to learn more about us by visiting a class or by talking with one of us. Please contact us if you have any questions about economics at Davidson or if you would like to plan a visit.
