Economics of Disasters

Economics of Disasters provides a look at a variety of natural disasters – from the Black Death of the Middle Ages to Hurricane Katrina, as well as the recent SARS and COVID-19 pandemics. The one-day program offers economic perspective to analyze these events, allowing educators to instill economic reasoning principles not only in economics courses, but also in history and the other social studies disciplines. 

One Day Seminars qualify for one graduate hour credit in economics from the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs for an additional fee. Please see the UCCS Optional Graduate Credit page for further information.
