The UB Department of Economics is committed to the educational goals of the University at Buffalo. These include providing students the basic knowledge required to understand how economic problems are approached, and imparting the basic qualitative and quantitative tools used by economists to solve economic problems. The Department is dedicated to contribute to these goals by devoting efforts to better serve the needs of our undergraduate and graduate students, by engaging in cutting edge research, and by continuously improving the design of our academic programs, our curriculums and our course offerings.

Department Student Learning Outcomes

Students majoring in economics will learn and apply the methods of economics in depth.  They will become familiar with the discipline, the role economics plays in relation to other areas of study, and the impact economics has on decisions and policymaking. At the end of their academic program, all Economics students should:

  • Have a basic understanding of macroeconomics and microeconomics that will enable them to succeed in both academic and professional post-undergraduate pursuits.

  • Be able to analyze current economic issues employing argumentation, written communication, mathematical models, and graphical analysis.

  • Present information in quantitative formats that are clear and move the argument forward.

  • Recognize, define, and analyze the constraints associated with resources and identify both cost and the benefits of particular “solutions” to social, economic, and political problems.

  • Evaluate the feasibility of the success of a particular social strategy based upon the underlying economic realities.
