Economics Faculty

Welcome to the Department of Economics at Rollins College

 

Economics is a major that is interesting, challenging, and always relevant to us both as individuals and as a society. The Department of Economics at Rollins College is composed of 12 full time faculty. Six of these have over 200 years of combined teaching experience, while the other six are young faculty. This faculty has a diverse background and experience (together we are literate in nine foreign languages) that is focused on advancing our student's knowledge and skills. We offer a unique program that considers economic behavior in economic history and alternative economic perspectives, along with traditional economic analysis. Every semester we also offer a variety of exceptional electives that reflect traditional topics such as international, monetary, and industrial economics, as well as frequent special topics courses that reflect our research and intellectual interests, currently ranging from Ethics and Economics, to the Economics of Non Profits, to the Economics of Piracy.  In this program, you will be challenged to, and will, with the assistance of the faculty, develop critical thinking skills by understanding different economic ideologies that compete to explain the world and justify economic policies.  Our graduates have gone on to a variety of excellent graduate programs in economics, international studies, business, law, public health, medicine, and public administration, policy & planning.
