Department of Economics
The Department of Economics is a part of the Gordon Ford College of Business at Western Kentucky University. We offer undergraduate programs in Economics, Mathematical Economics, Actuarial Science and Business Economics as well as a minor in Economics. We also offer a Master of Arts in Applied Economics that can be completed in as little as one calendar year. Our undergraduate and graduate programs are designed to give the student a solid background in general economics plus some exposure to specialized areas. We believe that our students receive excellent preparation for employment in a wide variety of jobs in business and government service, as well as preparatory training for graduate study in economics.
