In the Economics program at Saint Edward's University, students learn how goods and services are produced and distributed across the globe and how prices are set in competitive markets. They identify the causes of economic growth, unemployment and inflation and study the role of banking, money supply and interest rates in our domestic and global economy.
The BA in Economics offers more options to take non-Economics related courses and to study a wider range of subjects. This is helpful for students who seek a double major or a broader-based degree. Students will have the opportunity to tailor the degree to their own interests prior to advanced study in graduate school.
