Economics

A Bachelor of Arts (BA) is a degree that is given to students who successfully complete a three or four year program at a university or other educational institution. It honors focused study and specialized knowledge on a subject.

Those who study economics first and foremost learn the differences between microeconomics and macroeconomics. Microeconomics involves the behavior of individual markets, such as households and firms, and their interactions. Macroeconomics, on the other hand, involves looking at the entire economy as a whole.

Do you read the financial or business section of a newspaper or news Web site? Are you interested in what the chairman of the Federal Reserve Board has to say? And, unlike any of your friends, you actually know his name. Then you'd probably be interested in our economics major.

Economics is the study of how individuals in our society allocate produce and distribute scarce resources. The scarce resources can include labor, raw materials, land, machinery, and natural resources. Economists use mathematical models to develop programs predicting answers to questions and to obtain data. Economics theory and practice are used in government, business, non-profit organizations, research, and teaching. Economics majors at Pitt-Bradford analyze and study basic economics principles as well as economic policy decisions and their effects.

The International Economics degree program equips students with the skills necessary to succeed in the international world of business and economics while emphasizing the skills to develop orderly and critical thinking. It stresses both theoretical and applied concepts, quantitative and qualitative reasoning, communication skills and basic computer literacy. We also expect our students to appreciate and draw from their knowledge of other disciplines, other cultures, and other languages. The pluralistic approach taken by the department allows students to connect the content taught in the economics classes with the occurrences in the real world, thereby preparing them for diverse and challenging work environments. To concretize that connection, the Franklin Frank Program was created to foster service learning and to develop a student "economy" that can provide reflection on the nature of money and job creation. In today’s world of economic uncertainty, a deep understanding of economics is more vital than ever.

BA Economics

“May you live in interesting times!” — reputed to be an ancient Chinese curse.

These certainly do seem to be interesting times in which to be studying economics. The college students of today have discovered themselves to be living in a rather turbulent economic landscape, to say the least. As well, the political leadership and the electorate, and even the economics profession to some extent, seem to be having trouble agreeing on what to do about this.

Here at the University of Denver students in economics seek to understand how the social apparatus which governs the production and distribution of goods and services works. Students inquire into the causes of the process of economic growth and development, both within and across nations, and examine its social impact. They study topics such as the availability and consequences of government policy alternatives, the relation of the financial markets to the economy, the impact of the increasing globalization of economic activities, or the interaction of the economy with both the natural and the social environment. They also study how economic theories have developed over time to address these various topics.... [-]
