Department Description

“In a global economy filled with uncertainty, many students see economics as the best vehicle for a job promising good pay and security.” Majoring in economics helps students develop strong analytical and quantitative reasoning skills that enable them to not only solve problems but also identify the appropriate questions to ask in evaluating the alternatives that exist. This economic way of thinking helps individuals on a daily basis with the decisions they face and allows them to address issues in a wide variety of areas including finance, business, public policy (e.g., health care, environment), and international trade.
