Economics is a social science concerned with the process or system by which goods and services are produced, sold, and bought. When you major in economics, you will learn about a wide range of forces that shape our economy and society and examine issues such as poverty, growth, unemployment, income inequality, trade, healthcare, the environment, and regulation. Through the study of economics, you will become adept at critical thinking, acquire analytical skills, and strengthen your quantitative skills, each of which is valued in today’s workplace. Economics majors go on to have successful careers in industry, finance, consulting, law, public policy, and education.
