Economics at the University of California didn’t even begin as “economics”. It was first known as “Political Economy” and claimed a single faculty member. Before 1903, all faculty who taught anything related to economics did so as members of the Departments of History or Political Science. In that year, the Department of Economics at U.C. Berkeley was born. Our penchant for innovation started right from our inception: we were one of the first departments in the United States to be so named.
