Economics

minor

Through the study of Economics, students learn how to look at a complex world and make sense of the wide variety of behaviors they observe. Students minoring in economics are introduced to the analytical skills used to understand how households, firms, and governments make economic decisions, comparing costs and benefits in an effort to maximize their own well-being or social objectives.
