Welcome to the Department of Economics. We are part of the College of Arts and Science on the flagship campus of the University of Missouri. Our faculty conduct research that impacts both scholarly thought and policy at the international, national, and state levels.
Many faculty members serve in editorial capacities for academic journals, receive external research funding, and consult for businesses and governments. The Economic and Policy Analysis Research Center (EPARC) provides research support to the business community; local, state, and federal government agencies; and the University of Missouri system.
The department delivers instruction to a broad cross-section of the campus, including students in journalism, business, public affairs, and agricultural economics. Our undergraduate programs offer degrees in both the College of Arts and Science and the College of Business.
At the graduate level, we offer M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in economics as well as joint M.A. degrees with mathematics, statistics, and joint M.A. and J.D. degrees. Our students have gone on to successful careers in government, private industry, and academia. Many have achieved national and international prominence.

Since 1972, the Economic & Policy Analysis Research Center (EPARC) has provided tax data and analysis to the state legislature and to the citizens of Missouri through publications like the Missouri Statistical Data Archive, Historical Tax Summary, and the Tax Expenditure Report. After suspending the print publications, this information is now readily available on the EPARC Web site.
The Department of Economics held their annual Undergraduate Open House on Wednesday, September 18th. Students from across the University had the opportunity to stop by the Professional Building and speak with professors and current economics students about the numerous opportunities available within the department.
Congratulations to Assistant Professor Cory Koedel, who was recently added to the editorial board for Education Finance and Policy at the MIT Press!
