Welcome!

The Economics Department at the University of Oregon, located in the College of Arts and Sciences, employs a vibrant group of 25 faculty members. We are a top teaching and research department comprised of a dedicated group of faculty, staff and students who lead the field in current economic issues. We are also one of the fastest growing departments at the University due to the relevance of our subject matter, and our reputation for excellence in teaching and scholarship.

Our department is unusually active in the regional community, highlighted by the Oregon Economic Forum; an undergraduate honors program, in which student teams serve as consultants to local non-profit and government agencies; and the SAIL program, which encourages local low-income high school students to succeed in college.
