Economics

   The Economics Major: Economics is the social science that studies decision making given limited resources. The major is designed to instruct students in basic economic theory and analysis, and to prepare students for a variety of fields where economics is relevant and important, including business, law, and government. The program gives students a solid grounding in both critical thinking and knowledge of the field in general. Courses provide an understanding of markets and economic systems, and how to perform research and data analysis. The major also prepares students for graduate work in economics, business, or related fields.
