More on the Economic Department

Major Requirements | Economics Minor | Management and Organization Minor

Much more than finance, banking, business and government, a degree in economics is useful to all individuals and can lead to many interesting career choices. Watch this video created by The American Economics Association featuring Spelman alumna Britni Wilcher, C'2008, to discover how economics can be used as a tool for solving very human problems.

Goals

The goals of the economics department focus on the provision of an economics instruction consistent with the finest traditions of a liberal arts education. In this respect, the student shall comprehend the discipline of economics as not only one that relies on the scientific principles of prediction and forecasting, but as a discipline whose theorizing and policy making embodies cultural and normative considerations as well. This comprehension of economics as both science and art provides the economics major with the broad educational experience that allows one to pursue varied professional and graduate school opportunities as well as immediate endeavors in the world of work upon graduation.
