About

The Economics program of Loyola Marymount University helps students gain an understanding of the limitations and successes of the systems of production, distribution, and consumption of material wealth.

Overview

What Is Economics?

Because of the economy's importance to the human condition, economic knowledge is useful in many fields, such as political science, sociology, anthropology, law, and history.

Economists study everything from ethics to elections and discrimination to drug dealing. Based on these studies, they develop theories that help us understand how actual economies work.

The breadth, practical relevance, and rigorous analytical training involved in the study of economics give students great flexibility in the choice of careers and graduate study.

What Do Economics Majors Do?

Majors of the Economics program of Loyola Marymount University learn about more than just math and money. Students learn how to analyze patterns in fluctuations in economic activity. They learn to use statistics and other tools. Majors also explore economic history, economic philosophies, and important economic institutions, such as the Federal Reserve System and The World Bank.

LMU offers a Bachelor of Science and a Bachelor of Arts in Economics. Economics majors desiring a second major in Business Administration can easily complete the requirements for both within four years. The degrees are good preparation for careers in business, government or the secondary classroom. They also prepare students for graduate study in business, law or economics.

Is This Major Right For You?

You might be a Economics major if you:

  • Are interested in business
  • Are interested in law, government, or finance
  • Enjoy problem solving
  • Enjoy analysis
  • Like math and statistics
