Overview

The mission of the Department of Economics at the University of Nevada, Reno is to provide high quality education through our degree programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels, undertake cutting-edge economics research, and assist public and private decision makers in practical ways. Consistent with our university's land-grant mission, we serve as a resource to the community through applied scholarship, outreach programs, and economic development. Examples include the University Center for Economic Development, University of Nevada Cooperative Extension, the Nevada Agricultural Experiment Station, Ozmen Center for Entrepreneurship, and the Institute for the Study of Gambling and Commercial Gaming.

The Department of Economics at the University of Nevada, Reno is an “idea place,” and seeks to become an increasingly creative and valuable resource as it conducts teaching, research, and service activities.

Through basic and applied research, the department’s faculty members create and develop ideas that push the frontier of knowledge and assist public and private decision makers in practical ways. Through service to the community and the economics profession, the Department seeks to be a “go-to place” for creative and practical ideas.

Current students are encouraged to get regular advising, participate in the Economics club to become more connected with the faculty and other students, and to learn more about the variety of doors further opened with economics training.
