Economics

The Economics major is designed to help students develop skills in analysis and decision making by becoming thoroughly grounded in the principles of economic reasoning.

Through this major you will gain an understanding of the economic relationships, forces, and patterns that influence the economic order on a global as well as national basis. And you will learn to apply economic analysis to a wide range of social and economic issues.

The economics major provides a broad and versatile base of preparation that is ideal for a life-long career in business, government, law, public policy, or other professional tracks. It also provides excellent background for further graduate study in economics, business administration, or law.
