You should consider Economics if you enjoy clear and logical approaches to exploring the riches and poverty which characterize economic life. Your studies in Economics will help you gain perspectives and solve problems related to public life, the business world, and the decisions shaping your future.

If you pick up the newspaper or turn on the news, it’s clear that economic forces impact all of us on a daily basis. The field of economics encompasses important societal issues, from social welfare programs, employment rates, and income inequality to inflation, monopolies, and antitrust laws.

A degree in economics also prepares you for careers in banking, law, marketing, journalism, environmental science, and medicine.... [-]
