What do Mick Jagger, John Elway and former President George Bush have in common? Each studied economics as their undergraduate major. Economics is highly regarded by graduate schools as well as employers in both the public and private sector. Both are looking for students with analysis and research skills and critical thinking and writing ability. Courses in economics develop proficiency in these areas, along with an understanding of business, politics, markets and the global economy.
Western’s Economics Program offers an 18-hour minor for students that is designed to provide students with the understanding of economic concepts so that they can be applied in alternative paths that lead to careers in business, banking, government, nonprofit, development or education.
