Economics teaches students how to look at a complex world and make sense of the wide variety of behaviors they observe. Students majoring in economics will learn the analytical skills used to understand how households, firms and governments make economic decisions, comparing costs and benefits in an effort to maximize their impact. Students will learn the critical skills used to determine the implications of economic decisions for the allocation of society's scarce resources, the pricing of goods and services, the distribution of income, the behavior of macroeconomic variables and the effect of government intervention. Classes within the economics major include, among others, international trade, law and economics, economics of sports, game theory, and public choice. The analytical skills students develop are useful preparation for careers in business, law, government, public policy and academia. A degree in economics is also appropriate for students intending to pursue advanced degrees in the social sciences and in professional schools.
