Economics Department sponsors a weekly seminar series in which UNH faculty, visiting faculty and advanced graduate students present original research papers and receive feedback. Graduate students are key participants in the seminar, earning credits during their first three years in the program for attending presentations, reviewing papers and eventually presenting their own work.

Seminars are held Fridays from 2:10-3:30 pm. All UNH faculty, staff and students are welcome to attend.
Papers are available outside of Paul College room 250 the week of the seminar.
