In addition to the Economics Core, students complete non-economics courses from one of four interdisciplinary areas: analytical and quantitative, behavior, history of thought, or policy. A second major or minor is required.
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.
