What Is Economics and Why Does it Matter?

Economics is a social science concerned with the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services. Students in our department are given a variety of tools that will allow them to learn and examine economics on a local and global level. We focus on various topics such as Health Economics, Urban Economics, Women in the Economy, Data Science and Management, and Money and Baking.

Our curriculum focuses on not only economic theory but statistical analysis as well. By teaching students how to construct and interpret empirical findings, they become better equipped to navigate the complex issues of the world. Students are also introduced to courses that will prepare them for a Master of Business Administration degree, such as management practicum. In addition to our economics major and minor, we offer a minor in management and organization.
