Positions of responsibility in today’s world are usually held by individuals who have the capacity to analyze complex problems and make intelligent decisions. Learning economics will help students think logically and improve their ability to use economic concepts to analyze “real world” problems and opportunities. In addition to preparation for business and government agency employment, an economics major is excellent preparation for law schools, master’s of business administration programs, and graduate programs in economics, agricultural economics, and natural resource management. The economics department offers a Bachelor of Science degree in economics with specializations in managerial economics, general economics, and economic and business forecasting. Economics minors are offered to complement accounting, business administration, and other majors.
