Welcome to the Department of Economics

Academic Year 2021-2022 Return to Full Operations

The UNM Department of Economics will be returning to a full schedule of Face-to-Face, Hybrid (F2F with some expected remote delivery) and Online Courses in the 2021-2022 Academic Year. Conditional on all UNM and State public health guidelines, we expect our newly-renovated Economics building to open back up to all faculty, students, and staff on August 2, 2021. For more information please see the UNM Bringing Back the Pack website here.
