Return to Programs of Study Return to: Programs of Study

The economics major (bachelor of arts) provides students with the tools to study how incentive structures cause people, firms and governments to make optimal or less than optimal decisions. Students will learn how to research and analyze the marketplace by examining logical models. These models can then be applied to particular problems to predict actions that need to be taken to incentivize people, firms and governments to react in a certain way. Such models involve analyzing economic, political, historical, and social indicators in order to understand the economic marketplace.
