Choices. How and Why They Affect our World

Imagine the choices consumers make each day—buying, selling, working, voting, breaking laws and more. Imagine the choices firms face—what to sell, how much to pollute, who to hire, and how much to pay. Imagine the power governments have to tax and spend. Now imagine yourself diving into these issues to figure out why people make these decisions—and how they affect our world.

Options

The Economics major in the College of Arts & Sciences is part of a broad liberal arts education.

Economics majors may also pursue a minor in Business Administration in the College of Business, which also offers a Business Economics major.

A dual major also is possible with any other discipline in the College of Arts & Sciences, providing all college requirements are met and the requirements for the full major are met in both disciplines.
