Major in Economics

As an economist, you may be called on to explain or predict some of the most interesting and puzzling issues of our time – the fluctuations in interest rates and oil prices, the value of the dollar or the implications of continental free trade. Economic analysis can help you make important personal decisions about your budget and investments or even the location of your home. A knowledge of economics helps you understand the implications of global trends and changes to the tax system or health insurance plans. Our Economics Program provides an excellent preparation for a management career in business or government, or the background you need for graduate studies.
