Economics - Primary Track Why are prices going up? Why are some products harder to get? These everyday questions, and others like them, are what economists try to answer. Economics is the study of how individuals, businesses, governments, and societies make decisions concerning the use and distribution of resources, such as time, money, and skills. It is the central science underlying business and public policies. A B.S. in Economics emphasizes a broad understanding of how consumers' and producers' behavior is influenced by certain events—such as changes in interest rates, changes in prices, and new government regulations. The Department of Economics offers two program tracks. The primary track allows students to choose their own outside minor to complement their study of economics and advance their career goals. Political science, finance, business administration, and foreign languages are some of the common choices for an outside minor. The quantitative track is a specialized program designed to prepare students for graduate education in economics. An education in economics prepares students for employment in a wide variety of jobs—including banking, real estate, insurance, financial management, sales, and public administration—and serves as an excellent foundation from which to pursue law school or other advanced degree work.
