Economics is the study of how people make choices under conditions of scarcity of resources, including time, and the implications of these choices for individual and social welfare. Its methods allow for a deeper, more analytic, understanding of the connections between individual choices and social outcomes. The department stresses analytical and quantitative approaches to the study of human choice and economic behavior, the functioning of the economic system, and specific subject areas and economic issues. Majors in economics receive training in the core subjects of the discipline: general principles, micro- and macroeconomic theory, statistics, and econometrics. They learn to use the cumulative skills developed in the core courses to analyze a variety of economic problems, social issues, and economic institutions. Learning Goals By the completion of the major, students will be better educated global citizens who can apply economic theory and empirical findings to illuminate a wide range of national and international social and policy issues. They will understand the large and growing economic interdependence of the nations and people of the world. They will be able to distinguish the difference between the kinds of questions that economics can and cannot answer, and they will be able to communicate their knowledge of economics to others.
