Fields of Expertise

The economics faculty at George Mason University is noted for the multi-disciplinary orientation its members bring to bear on their scholarship. While economic theory resides at the core of that scholarship, a good deal of that scholarship makes significant contact with such other fields of study as politics, sociology, history, philosophy, and law. The field exams we offer illustrate some of this breadth, which the opportunity we offer for students to design an individualized field amplifies.

Much of that scholarly breadth is carried on through three organized research programs: Austrian economics, public choice, and experimental economics, with these programs listed in the chronological order in which they became part of research program at George Mason.
