Ranked Among the Nation’s Top Economics Programs

Denison’s Department of Economics is ranked among the nation’s top economics programs for undergraduates by Change Magazine.  The curriculum focuses on helping you to develop an understanding of the institutional, analytic and empirical framework within which economic decision-making occurs. The department has its own well-equipped Macintosh computer laboratory which you will use in many of your courses and for independent research. In many of your economics classes, you will use real world data to test the validity of economic theory and to explore the development of new analysis.

You will learn how to use your empirical skills to critically evaluate the choice and effectiveness of policy in both the private and public sector.

Our department also has a strong interest in the connections between the United States’ economy and that of the rest of the world.

Three Denison economics faculty members have won outstanding teaching awards from the Joint Council on Economic Education for their innovative approaches to teaching economics.

An up-to-date Schedule of Walk-in Tutoring Sessions is on the door of our Higley 217 Conference Room.
