Selected Courses

I primarily teach Microeconomics (Introduction and Intermediate), Statistics for Economists, Game Theory, Economic Development, and Economics of the Environment. In addition my colleagues and I rotate Senior Research and Capstone experiences. I also have offered three Ford/Knight courses – courses at Earlham which encourage student-faculty collaboration in small groups.

I was also the faculty mentor on a student-faculty collaborative research team that was awarded an AsiaNetwork-Freeman program grant in 2008. Our project was titled ‘Immigrants in Singapore: A Study in Connections, Class and Country.'


Rajaram Krishnan teaches in both economics and international studies. He has led off-campus programs in Kenya and South Asia and conducted research with students in Singapore. Rajaram’s scholarly interests include issues related to economic development, the environment and globalization. His present research interests are focused on looking at issues related to student preparedness for college and the transition from high school to college. This interest was sparked by a grant he received from a New Directions Initiative sponsored by the Great Lakes Colleges Association.
