Faculty members in the Department of Economics are some of the very best the university has to offer. Their diverse areas of expertise allow students to study a wide array of subjects, and their congeniality, dedication to teaching, and concern for students are the primary reasons why economics is one of the most sought-after degrees at Furman.
