Economics

The Department of Economics encourages student involvement in activities outside of the classroom. We have students who join our Fed Challenge class in which our faculty train and coach them to participate in the National Fed Challenge competition held in Chicago every fall. College Fed Challenge is a team competition for undergraduate students. Teams analyze economic and financial conditions and formulate a monetary policy recommendation, modeling the Federal Open Market Committee. Our Econ Club students take trips to Chicago to visit financial institutions to learn more about real-world applications they are learning in the classroom. They travel to the Statehouse every year to meet with local and state politicians to gain a better understanding of our laws and it all applies to Economics. Econ in Motion, Dr. Cecil Bohanon’s film projects, students does all the work in the making of the film from acting to directing to editing. The films then are presented to the University and the local community. They also enter these films in contests around the country. The department has students who work with professors on research and go to different Economics conferences to help present the work. Our students have been everywhere from Chicago to Las Vegas presenting with our faculty. It is our hope that we will be able to send more students to bigger conferences as we continue to grow.
