Historical Note

Classes in economics were first taught as political economy classes at Michigan State University starting in 1858. In 1875 the department of Political Economy was created. In 1883 it merged with the history department to become the Department of History and Political Economy. In 1899 the department of Economics and Political Science was created. In 1908 the department changed to History and Economics and in 1916 each became their own department. In 1946 the department was administered by the School of Science and Arts. In 1949 it was administered by the School of Business and Public Service and continued to be administered by the Business College until 2001. The Department of Economics has been administered by the College of Social Science since 2002.
