The Economics program from Drew University seeks to instill in its students a holistic understanding of the economy and the disciplines of economics and business.


The Economics students from Drew University learn to think critically, analytically, and empirically about the economy, its challenges, and its connections to the rest of society.

The Drew Economics Department has established three broad objectives for its economics curriculum. It teaches students analytical tools for understanding the functioning of economic systems, familiarizes them with the origin, character, and operation of economic institutions, and enables them to make informed judgments about economic policy.

The Economics major includes traditional introductory and intermediate microeconomics and macroeconomics courses, along with quantitative classes such as statistics and econometrics.  Students are also required to take “critical perspectives” courses that challenge traditional assumptions found in both economic models and society.
