Welcome to the Department of Economics
The Department of Economics at Virginia Tech focuses on teaching, research and outreach in regard to economic issues at the state, national and international levels.
We offer both undergraduate and graduate training for students who wish to concentrate in economics. In addition, we offer general education courses that provide undergraduates from across the university with a background in the business, policy and international aspects of economics they need to support their programs of study.
The majority of our faculty are engaged in interdisciplinary or international research collaborations.
