The Economics program at Fairfield University prepares students for careers in the private and public sectors, at both the domestic and international levels, as economists, analysts, and upper-level managers.

Led by a devoted faculty, students challenge economic theories while using advanced technology in the classroom. Students blend modern economic concepts with current issues, developing their reasoning and critical thinking ability. Our curriculum provides students with traditional business skills such as data analysis, statistics and numerical research along with a rich liberal arts education to help them judge the merits of world markets and events.

Our Economics Department offers a variety of learning options. You are given the freedom to track courses that lead to either a B.S. or B.A. Our study abroad and internship programs promote real-world, first-hand experience and provide you an excellent background for careers in all sectors of business as well as preparation for advanced study in graduate or professional schools.
