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 its two undergraduate degree programs, its two master’s degree programs, its Ph.D. program, and its minor, the Department transfers existing economic ideas to students.”

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

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