Current Research Project

  • Labor Market Conditions in South-Eastern Pennsylvania - This research project, carried out in collaboration with Lancaster's Spanish American Civic Association (SACA), investigates labor market conditions for marginalized, poor and working-poor communities in Lancaster and neighboring counties by collecting data on income flows, traditional and new employment patterns, barriers to full paid-employment opportunities, and other relevant factors, disaggregated by race/ethnicity, gender, national origin, disability status, and other demographic characteristics. The project aims to identify gaps in existing data and to offer a critical analysis of the data and current understanding and representation of labor market conditions.

Overview of Economics at F&M

Our curriculum better prepares F&M students with a broader realm of knowledge from which to draw throughout their careers. It also distinguishes our majors as they enter the professional world or graduate school, leading to top-level placements.

We offer truly impressive opportunities to work closely with faculty members in highly specialized courses and one-to-one tutorials.

Seniors who have exhibited outstanding scholarship gain access to independent research and study opportunities that can lead to departmental honors and publication in leading journals.

Our program is supported by an active, student-run Economics Club.

An economics major is valuable to any number of different professional disciplines in which critical thinking, analysis, and writing are emphasized.

While most graduates of the program enter the business world, many go on to graduate programs in medicine, law, or economics at such institutions as Oxford, Columbia, NERA, Harvard University, Yale University, University of Pennsylvania, University of California at Berkeley, Cornell University, Michigan State University, and the University of Virginia.

Economics Department Mission Statement

"We strive to teach students the foundations of economic analysis within a liberal arts culture that celebrates the value of open and critical inquiry, promotes intellectual empathy, rewards analytical rigor, and develops a sense of both local and global citizenship. We seek to fulfill this mission by exposing our students to the broad spectrum of economic thought that animates our discipline, by encouraging the thoughtful application of theory to current issues and economic problems entrenched in the institutions structures of contemporary society, and by fostering an environment that values scholarly research, intellectual curiosity, and respectful engagement with alternative points of view."

Special Note - The Will Lyons Inaugural lecture by Jan Kregel has been released as a Working Paper from the Levy Institute.  The link to the Working Paper is as follows:

Independent Study and Departmental Honors

Senior majors who exhibit a high level of scholarship may apply to do independent research under faculty direction. Departmental honors may be awarded for superior work. Students who are interested in graduating with honors must approach a faculty member or the Department Chair to apply as early as possible.


Only students who have completed the required courses (ECO 100, 103, 200, 201, 203 respectively, and 210, MAT 216, or BOS 250) by the end of their junior year are eligible to apply for honors research. Normally, the honors-bound research project is completed during the spring semester of the senior year. To be eligible, the student must have achieved a GPA of at least 3.5 in economics courses and a GPA of 3.0 or higher overall at the beginning of the honors project and at the time of graduation.

Granting of Departmental Honors

The final granting of honors by the Department of Economics is conditional on maintaining a GPA of 3.5 in all economics course work.


The honors program consists of a substantial piece of work requiring extensive independent research within an Independent Study program resulting in a high-caliber thesis. A thesis of this quality requires sustained research effort throughout the semester.

The student is expected to work independently and to meet with the advisor on at least a bi-weekly basis. The advisor may require written work for each meeting. If at any time the advisor believes that the student’s research effort is insufficient for an honors project, s/he may recommend cessation of honors and dissolve the honors committee.

In particular cases it is advisable that the student completes ECO390 Directed Reading in their junior year or the fall of their senior year as preparation for the honors program.


Although extenuating circumstances may lead to a revision of these deadlines, in general the failure to meet these deadlines will end the honors program. (The timing of the deadlines listed below assumes the honors project is completed during the spring semester. If a project is completed during the fall semester, the deadlines would correspond to similar placement within that semester.)

Early to mid February: Topic is finalized and honors committee formed.

The student has delineated an area of study and established a research question. The Honors Committee is constituted by the Advisor in consultation with the student. It will be made up of two Economics professors and one or more professors from another department. The Advisor is not a member of the Committee.

Third week of March: Draft submitted to advisor.

Early April: Draft submitted to honors committee.

After reading the draft, Members of the Honors Committee make a recommendation to the Advisor as to whether or not the thesis is worthy of Honors.

Third week of April: Final draft submitted to honors committee.

The Committee members have between one and two weeks to review the thesis.

Oral Defense and Copy of Thesis

The advisor will schedule the oral defense in consultation with the honors committee. The oral defense is announced to the public. It will normally take place during the examination period.

During the oral defense the student will present their work to the committee and respond to questions from committee members. The advisor has no role in defending the thesis. The oral defense may, but is not expected to last beyond one hour in total.

Immediately following the oral defense, the honors committee recommends to the Department of Economics that the candidate receive honors (without revision), honors (with revision), or no honors. The advisor informs the candidate of the committee’s recommendation. If revisions are required, the student will resubmit the thesis to the advisor within one week.

The student must file one paper copy and one electronic copy (CD) of the final thesis as well as a signed release form with the College Archives in Shadek Fackenthal Library. Instructions and a downloadable release form are available at

The student should also submit a paper copy of the thesis to the Department of Economics office.
