Overview

Mesh your curiosity about human behavior with your knack for math. As an economist, you’ll study how people interact as consumers, workers, entrepreneurs and citizens. You will analyze the factors that shape people’s choices of what to buy and sell—and how those choices impact education, healthcare and environmental protection. As you work to understand these complexities, you’ll explore questions like “Why do cable companies have so many channel packages?” and “How does a minimum wage affect workers?”
