The Economics major provides a critical examination of how the economic system works in the United States and throughout the world. The introductory courses are surveys of economic problems, policies, and theory, and the required courses in micro theory and macro theory, ECON2201-ECON2202, give a deeper analytical foundation. Two required courses in quantitative methods, ECON1151 and ECON2228 develop analytical and empirical research skills. Electives permit further study in a wide range of fields, including money and banking, fiscal policy, international trade and finance, law and economics, public sector economics, economic development, capital theory and finance, labor economics, income distribution, financial econometrics, industrial organization, consumer economics, health economics, history of economic thought, transportation economics, environmental economics, urban economics, political economy, financial markets, real estate, and public policy analysis. The Economics major provides a general background that is useful to those planning careers in law, government service, and business as well as those planning careers as professional economists. Professiona economists work as college teachers, as researchers for government agencies, businesses, and consulting firms, and as administrators and managers in a wide range of fields.
