Economics studies the allocation of scarce resources over competing and alternative uses. Students interested in social and political issues such as income inequality, economic development, sustainable resources use, globalization or the implications of free trade, should consider a major in Economics and its related fields.
The Department of Economics gives students rigorous training in both economic theory and its applications, offering the opportunity to focus in economics or to combine it with a number of complementary subjects. Students in the Economics program have the freedom to tailor their degree by focusing on a number of important areas within economics after building a strong foundation in economics theory and quantitative skills.
