The economics department is located in Riley 109, and features a gathering area and lounge, perfect for hosting department events. Our department is also within close proximity of the math and computer science departments, allowing for greater synergy.

Our lab space in Riley Hall and the green-certified Hipp Hall offers students access to numerous useful software programs, as well as the latest tools needed to capture lecturers and deliver components of courses in an online format, including:

  • STATA software: an econometrics program
  • ArcGIS: a geographic systems software
  • Bloomberg Terminal: offers access to current economics and finance data and news, used extensively by our Investments Club
  • Both PC and Mac access

The study of economics at Furman extends outside of our classrooms and lecture halls. From academic programs and clubs to research projects and internships, our department has the resources to help you achieve your goals. Take advantage of the opportunities available to you.
