    Based on faculty publishing, Haverford's economics department places within the top quartile when compared to other colleges of its type.

    I am an economics major at Haverford. As merc81 said and as you can guess, Haverford Economics Department does the job. The professors are generally very approachable. They're all excellent scholars, but as lecturers some of them can certainly improve.

    Do you know what type of economics you're interested in? It seems like a lot of the students in the department are interested in finance or public health, and the department seems to produce a lot of students who end up in finance. If you're interested in other topics such as labor economics then you'll probably struggle with finding classes you want to take to fulfil your elective requirement for the major. I think the bi-co departments do try to have a variety of elective courses, but some courses don't run every semester or even every year.
