Department of Economics
Welcome to the Department of Economics!
Working closely with faculty in small classes, economics students at Stetson University explore the timely issues of today's global economy. Area emphases in Africa, Latin America, Russia and China offer insights into transition economies and the developing economies of the future. The department also offers explorations in environmental economies, race and gender, and the interaction between economies and religion.
The application of critical analyses and modeling to the production, distribution, consumption and management of resources provides students with tools to understand the effect of economics on their lives. The study of economics provides a strong foundation for careers or graduate study in business, government, law, teaching, and research.
