Department ofEconomics


Scholars in the Department of Economics are recognized internationally for their research across a wide spectrum of economic issues, many with important policy implications.

Santa Clara’s economists publish in leading scholarly journals in the field, and also advise government agencies, central banks, and non-governmental organizations on such practical concerns as monetary policy, bank regulation, and poverty alleviation. We employ a wide range of methodologies, including data development and data analysis, mathematical modeling, randomized experiments and field trials, and analytical narratives. Many faculty engage undergraduate students in various aspects of their research.
