Economics is the science that studies the interactions of human behavior, sociology, finance and business at the micro and macro-scale. Students completing a degree in this field will have an introductory foundation for the field of Economics through the study of scarcity, comparative advantage, markets, cost theory, monetary system and economic growth. Students will acquire skills and abilities in numeracy, analysis, problem-solving, and both verbal and written communication.
Career opportunities with a baccalaureate degree may include jobs in business, law, medicine, government, non-profits, international relations, and education.
Transfer requirements in Economics are available in the Counseling Department. In all cases, students should consult with a counselor for specific transfer requirements.
