Center Offers Economic Research Workshops

Has the relationship between mother and child changed as women have entered the workforce? Does teacher pay have an effect on how students perform in public schools? Does public transportation help the environment or is it cost effective?

The DeVoe L. Moore Center is bringing together FSU economics faculty and graduate students for a special workshop series geared toward helping students develop the skills for researching the pressing social, economic, and political concerns of our time.

All sessions are in the DeVoe Moore Center, 150 Bellamy.
