Utica, NY, United States
Economics is the science that studies and conducts research in the production, development, distribution, and management of the material wealth of the world economy, nations, business enterprises, households, and individuals, and of the dynamics of economic interactions between individuals and groups.

Overview

The major in economics can open a path to employment in government, business, labor, research, or education. There is a demand for those who are broadly trained in the liberal arts without sacrificing the firm foundation of depth in analytical thinking. This program also provides the basis for graduate work in economics and law, or for training for high executive positions.

Utica College's economics program integrates theoretical and practical economics with broad liberal arts training, providing students with the value-added skills to succeed in a range of professional environments. Part of UC's Business and Economics department, the economics major offers hands-on learning across a variety of disciplines within the department, with excellent facilities - including a full-featured trading room - and opportunities for internships.
