The Department of Economics in the Hofstra College of Liberal Arts and Sciences offers a range of degree programs tailored to students with different professional and educational objectives. We seek to share with all students a core interest in understanding how people interact with one another and organize themselves to enhance their living condition, to promote various individual and collective goals, and to go about the everyday business of making a living.

Economics is “something more than a science; a science shot through with the infinite variety of human life, calling not only for systematic, ordered thinking, but for human sympathy, imagination, and in an unusual degree for the saving grace of common sense

-Richard Ely,
Outlines of Economics
1919, p. 4

Studying economics, you will learn about important problems, understand challenges that the future holds and those overcome in the past, analyze events whose consequences influence the well-being of millions and of you individually.

As economist John Maynard Keynes said, studying economics gives you "a rare combination of gifts": learning how to contemplate the present and future in light of the past, thinking in the abstract and understanding the concrete, understanding the world of business, foreign economies, finance, work, and government policies from the standpoint of broader social concerns.
