Economics, MA

Offered in: CHICAGO

Economics at Roosevelt University goes beyond the conventional economics that is taught at most universities in the United States and presents students with an economic analysis from the perspective of alternative schools of thought. Roosevelt is one of the few universities in the United States where students can study economics from Heterodox points of view, in addition to mainstream Neoclassical and Keynesian points of view.

Pluralism, heterodoxy, intellectual tolerance and diversity of thought and method form the context for the goals of the Economics Department. We do not seek to replace one orthodoxy with another but rather to encourage our students to view economics as an evolving discipline that can help them make sense of the world around them. We seek to provide a series of lenses and analytical skills with which they can critically examine political, social and economic issues, weigh evidence, ask questions, develop their intellectual curiosity and appreciate the diversity of thought....
