The first Chair in Economics at Uppsala University was established already in 1741. Today, the Department of Economics is one of the largest departments within the Faculty of Social Sciences, with around 100 employees from about ten different countries. Each year about 1,000 students participate in our undergraduate (BA), graduate (MA) and PhD-level courses. Researchers at the Department are frequently used as experts by the government and by the media, and interact with the society at large in a number of ways.
