SOCIAL SCIENCES

Economics

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. Theses courses constitute typical lower division preparation for a major in economics, and satisfy general education in social science.
