The major in economics provides students with an excellent background for careers in finance, industry, government, and the non-profit sector. In addition, it prepares students for graduate work in economics, law, business, and public policy. Economics majors develop their institutional knowledge about the business world, the domestic and global economic environment in which businesses, households, and communities operate, and the governmental policies that affect businesses and workers. Further, economics majors develop the ability to analyze complex economic and social issues and to communicate the results of their analysis through writing and oral presentation.
