A CAREER IN ECONOMICS
is much more than you think
Economics is much broader than what most people realize. Economics is actually about people! It is the science of human behavior. It actually intersects many disciplines like psychology, law, health and medicine, physics, engineering, business, history, manufacturing, journalism and so many more. Economcis allows you to answer questions about why humans do what they do. It allows us to really drill down into societal problems and come up with solutions using math, theory, data, trials and real world experiences to create solutions.

BRANDON KOFORD department chair & professor
I am happy to welcome you to the Department of Economics. I am proud to be a graduate from the department, class of 2004. After graduate school at the University of Kentucky and my first job at Valdosta State University, I returned as a faculty member in 2010. Now, as chair, my goal is to make our department a place where students can join together with faculty to learn economics, engage in research opportunities, be creative, and achieve their career dreams. We offer many programs that allow students to find the perfect fit. We have programs in Business Economics, International Economics, Quantitative Economics, General Economics, and Legal Studies. Graduates from the department go on to successful careers as executives, managers, lawyers, actuaries, analysts, and professors. Stop by the department, Wattis 226, to introduce yourselves and talk about your interests and how economics can be part of your future.
