The Department of Economics and Geography is committed to the delivery of exceptional undergraduate and graduate instruction by faculty members who are both actively engaged in scholarly activities and capable of integrating the results of their research into their instructional activities. Our intent is that this instruction will emphasize our role in guiding students to prepare them to be intellectual resources that will continually redevelop to serve many organizations over a productive career. Students are expected to take courses in microeconomics and macroeconomics, as well as econometric courses. Students will gain experience in the understanding of the global economy by taking international economics courses as well as having a study abroad experience. We also recognize our responsibility to provide economics related services to the University and Jacksonville communities.
The program in the Department of Economics and Geography in the Coggin College of Business is designed to provide students with the tools and concepts necessary to understand our modern economy, to function more effectively as citizens, and to make sound decisions. A major in economics opens the door to a wide variety of jobs in business, government, finance, and other professions. Economics is particularly appropriate for those students who plan to enter public service or law, whether in the community or at other levels, or who plan to go on to graduate study.
Students should choose their elective courses in economics in support of their expected career goals. The department faculty recommends the following: Students interested in emphasizing international economics, should take 3 of the following:

The Coggin College of Business (http://www.unf.edu/coggin/abroad/) offers three types of programs:
* Faculty-led study abroad courses
Note: Coggin undergraduate students can only apply to TWO upper-level, faculty-led study abroad courses towards their program of study. This excludes the 4-week summer and semester programs. Also, Coggin undergraduate students can only use ONE faculty-led study abroad towards their “major” requirements.
* 4 week summer programs (via exchange partners)
* Semester and academic year abroad (via exchange partners)
On a limited case by case basis, students may be approved (through the formal College petition process) to participate in non-Coggin College of Business study abroad programs, when demonstrating a unique need unable to be met through a Coggin College of Business study abroad program.
