The department of economics is dedicated to a student-centered educational experience in economics. Our program prepares students for successful careers in the private and public sectors as well as graduate studies in economics, law school, and MBA programs. With only 39-46 credits required to complete major related coursework, students have the flexibility to complete a minor, a second major, or a foreign language.
We foster our students’ intellectual growth by encouraging the use of economic reasoning to better understand past and present economic and social issues. Studying economics gives students the tools to answer questions related to economic growth, unemployment, inflation, income inequality, labor markets, international trade, finance, environmental sustainability, and more!
