Economics Major and Minor
Economics pertains to the interaction amongst individuals as they use scarce means toward the attainment of their goals. The objective of the economics major is to promote in students an understanding of these interactions and thus, provide them a foundation for rational and effective participation in society. Specifically, students receive the education necessary to begin careers in business, finance, government, and education or to pursue graduate degrees in such fields as business administration, economics, and law. The student's ultimate success requires the desire to build upon this foundation. Therefore, the major strives to foster intellectual curiosity about social process and eagerness to use analytical techniques in solving social problems. Economics majors can also choose financial economics as emphasis for their study.
