The study of economics prepares students to understand the productions and distribution of wealth as well as the allocation of scarce resources in an ever-changing economic system.
As economics majors, students will gain a broad understanding of how employment, inflation and economic growth can be controlled by monetary and fiscal policy. Students will also learn how markets function and what causes them to succeed and fail.
