Economics helps us think critically about a diverse array of problems ranging from domestic and international public policy issues to personal choices about careers, spending, and investments. Thus, a sound knowledge of economics is vital for understanding the contemporary world and its problems. The Economics major also offers useful training for those interested in pursuing a business career, and provides excellent preparation for post-graduate work in Economics, Law, Business, Public Administration, Public Policy and other professional fields. For economics majors a well-balanced offering of courses is designed to equip the student with an understanding of basic economic relationships, the essential tools of economic analysis, and a store of factual knowledge.
