Economics Courses

Economics concerns the wealth of nations, its origins in production and exchange, its allocation among competing uses, its distribution among individuals, and its accumulation or decline. It seeks to discern both the common features and the differences in the institutions by which societies throughout the world, today and in the past, have organized economic life. The discipline considers many issues of national and international policy, focusing on social institutions and outcomes. It combines theoretical and analytical rigor with concern for “real world” problems. Students studying economics often pursue careers in banking, accounting, and management, journalism, government service, or marketing.
