Economics at Earlham introduces students to the theoretical and empirical tools of economic analysis. Our students develop and hone the skills required to undertake independent research.

Our faculty is involved locally and beyond from studying Richmond’s Blight Elimination Program to collaborating on a GLCA collaborative project which tracks economics, socio-communal and foreign policy issues in India.
