Through a breadth of coursework that combines a theoretical foundation with real-world application, students learn to understand the economic phenomena that drive our world. From the history of economic policies to the role of technology in economic growth, from the United States’ economy to globalization, we offer a range of topics that prepare students to apply critical thinking to everyday problems and the larger issues facing our society.

The pursuit of economics is an excellent foundation for graduate work in a variety of disciplines, as well as for many careers. Economics majors go on to work in business, law, public service, finance, the nonprofit sector and much more. The possibilities are as diverse as the strengths and interests of our students.
