Economics is the study of social activities concerned with the production, distribution and consumption of goods and services. Nearly all social phenomena and problems have economic aspects, and therefore, knowledge of economic systems and their relations with each other is essential to an understanding of the complex world in which we live.
The department has three undergraduate instructional goals:
- to provide students with basic tools of analysis and the factual, statistical and descriptive materials they will need to perform their duties as citizens;
- to introduce economics majors to the various fields of economics to prepare them for positions in business and government and for graduate study; and
- to offer a course of study suitable for a minor in economics.
