» Affiliate and Associate Programs

Chapman’s Economic Science Institute (ESI) is proud to sponsor affiliate and associate programs that complement our rich research environment. Currently we host lectures every week, presented by these diverse scholars from within the Chapman community and the academic community as a whole.

Our goal is to mesh economics with anthropology, archaeology, genetics, philosophy, accounting and religion to examine fundamental issues in the birth and development of economic institutions, as well as providing market frameworks within which attendees can solve today’s socioeconomic problems. The experimental viewpoint is also used to examine more traditional topics such as market organization, individual preferences, trust, etc. ESI affiliates come from Chapman, across the U.S. and abroad.

We cross-disciplinary boundaries teaching courses in the Law School and initiating innovative joint research projects with the Schools of Science and Business and the departments of philosophy and religion in the College of Humanities.
