As part of its mission, the University of Georgia “endeavors to prepare the university
community and the state for full participation in the global society of the 21st century.”
The Department of Economics plays a vital role in this mission in two important ways.
For students interested in business careers, economics is an essential foundation
for business education. Similarly, when it’s viewed in the broader sense of a liberal
arts education, economics is a core discipline and an integral part of a well-rounded
course of study.
We strive to promote high-quality research and scholarship and to provide students
with an excellent education in economics that gives them a conceptual framework for
understanding the world, a set of skills for pursuing leadership in the world’s private
enterprise system, and a foundation for advanced study and research.
