SOCIAL SCIENCES: ECONOMICS

Overview

An Economics education provides students with a logical way to approach various problems. Students learn techniques for analyzing contemporary economic problems and develop the ability to evaluate public policy issues.

We seek to instill in students a broad understanding of the principles and methods of economics and their value in government and in the study of society.

The program offers introductory courses in general economics, micro and macro economics. These courses constitute typical lower division preparation for a major in economics, and satisfy general education in social science.
