Welcome to Economics

Learn economics from teachers with real world experience.

Our economics majors stand apart from the crowd because they truly understand and work within intricate economic realities and markets. You’ll learn micro, macro and international economics, and also get the chance to do original research with real-time, real-world topics.

What You’ll Love About the Economics Major:

  • You will learn ways to be thoughtful and deliberate in your decisions since deep analysis of the issues and a certain tolerance for ambiguity works better in economics than quick-at-the-trigger, black-and-white thinking.
  • You can mesh interests across the business, political and legal spectrums
  • You’ll get the chance to do original research with real-time, real-world topics.
  • Thanks to technology, you can evaluate intricate information and make data-driven decisions and conclusions.
