Message From The Chair


Welcome to the Department of Economics at The University of Colorado Colorado Springs. The department’s faculty members teach and conduct research in various fields of economics. We have approximately 170 undergraduate majors. Our faculty members also serve the profession through community outreach, publication, and memberships in academic associations. Their expertise translates into high quality instruction in their fields.

Our principles of economics classes provide an introduction to economics for hundreds of students from across the university each year. For many students, this is their first and only exposure to economics in the classroom, and we take seriously our responsibility to help students become economically literate.

Our undergraduate program provides economics majors with broad knowledge of important aspects of economics. We ground our majors well in economic theory and encourage them to learn how to pose interesting economic questions and use their training to pursue answers on their own. Our undergraduate students go on to careers in government, education, and business, with many pursuing post-graduate degrees. The department faculty advise students in selecting courses, finding internships, and choosing career paths.

Prospective students interested in an economics major or minor should contact the advising office to sign up. Detailed information about our major program, courses, and faculty can be found by exploring our web site. Any specific questions can be addressed to me by email at fkhan@uccs.edu, talking to any economics faculty member, or by visiting the economics department on the second floor of ACAD.
