"Economics is the study of mankind in the ordinary business of life."
Alfred Marshall (1842 - 1924)
Student Life in the Economics Department
In both the B.A. and the BBA programs, students receive attention from highly trained faculty experienced in the application of economics to social, business, and government issues. Economics students develop analytical capabilities, quantitative skills, and computer acumen that provide excellent preparation for business and government policy-making and the analysis of contemporary affairs.
Internships in economics are encouraged so that students can apply their classroom training to 'real-world' problems and practices in a variety of organizations. The department also has an active student-run club, the Adam Smith Society, which sponsors speakers and social activities for students, faculty, and alumni. Outstanding students are eligible for selection to Omicron Delta Epsilon, the international economics honor society.
Faculty offices are located on the 3rd floor of Sellinger Hall on Loyola's Baltimore campus. The department chair, Fred Derrick, can be found in Sellinger 309. For more information, please contact the department at 410-617-2357.
