Scientifically Rigorous Economic Analysis for Solving Real-World Problems
Students majoring in economic science study microeconomic (specific components of the economy) and macroeconomic (the economy viewed as a whole) theory at both the introductory and intermediate levels in preparation for potential careers in:
- Public administration
- Labor-management relations
- Industrial economics, finance, management, and marketing
The economic science major also provides students with an excellent foundation for graduate study in economics, business, and law.
Students will approach the study of economics through the use of innovative computational tools, with strict adherence to rigorous methodological standards for economic experimentation and problem solving, which instills practical skills for addressing real-world challenges.
