In a recent paper entitled "What do undergraduates study in heterodox economics programs? An examination of the curricula structure at 36 self-identified programs", author Reynold Nesiba describes the CSUSB Department of Economics as "the world's most distinctive undergraduate program in heterodox economics." The Department of Economics is identified as a strong pluralistic program that blends traditional economics with political economy. The CSUSB Department of Economics is compared favorably to the Political Economy program at the University of Sydney, Australia. Nesiba concludes his paper by noting that the CSUSB Department of Economics is "intentionally pluralistic, heterodox, and worthy of further replication".
