Meet Our Faculty Economics Furman University

Faculty members in the Economics department 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 traditionally one of the most sought-after degrees at Furman. Our faculty members publish regularly in top academic journals and write articles on teaching economics to undergraduates.
