Economics is a social and behavioral science discipline that uses the scientific approach from natural sciences and mathematical disciplines to understand rational, self-interested decision making under conditions of scarcity.
Why Major in Economics?
The choice of a major is an important decision and Economics is an excellent choice. Economics majors learn about consumers, firms, markets (including resource markets), and economic systems. Consequently, Economics helps prepare students for a wide variety of careers in private industry and public service. It is also an excellent major for students planning on going to law school or an MBA program.
