Cedarville, OH, United States
Cedarville’s distinctly Christian economics degree will prepare you for success in a variety of careers. You can choose from a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or Bachelor of Science (B.S.). The B.S. option is especially well-suited for those who plan to go to graduate school. 

Overview

  • Free market perspective — Cedarville professors provide a unique, free market perspective from an Austrian and classical liberal (the bedrock of conservative economic and political thought) foundation.
  • Biblical integration — In Cedarville's economics major, your study will begin with a Christian anthropology, understanding that men and women are created in the image of God, yet are fallen. This perspective will help you understand which economic system best leads to human flourishing while also minimizing the harm that fallen human beings can do to one another.
  • Economic way of thinking — Economics majors learn a particular method for problem-solving often referred to as the “economic way of thinking.” Employers value employees who are problem-solvers.
  • Broad-based foundation — While the economics major is housed in the School of Business Administration, major courses are taught not only by economics faculty but also by faculty from the Department of History and Government. Cedarville’s economics major focuses on political economy. Economics, political science, and history professors at Cedarville University blog at Bereans at the Gate.
