Department of Economics Mission Statement
"The primary aim of the Barnard Economics Department is to provide undergraduate liberal arts students with a rigorous, broad, and critical program in theoretical and empirical economics. To achieve this aim our curriculum
Provides a thorough grounding in neoclassical economic theory, modern statistical method, and their applications in the traditional fields of economic science;
Embeds that training in a broader conception of economic science and method with special emphasis on philosophical, historical, and institutional approaches that link economics with other social sciences and humanistic disciplines;
Compares and contrasts alternative methodological approaches and types of evidence as ways of analyzing economic phenomena, evaluating policy debates, and assessing the broader social and political consequences of economic doctrines."
