A course in Political Economy was listed in the 1863 Bates College catalog, and was the only course of its kind offered in the program for the next several decades. The program was expanded by several classes for the 1896-1897 academic year, under the heading "Economics and Sociology." The two programs of study would be split and reunited several times over the following decades, often under the heading "Social Sciences." For the 1931-1932 academic year, Economics became its own program for good.
This collection contains syllabi and reading lists for department courses, as well as brochures for a Hirasawa Symposium and the Phillips Lectureship in Economics.
