General Economics students learn to think creatively and deeply about important economic issues facing the world today. Students apply a variety of theoretical and empirical perspectives to issues of economic efficiency, economic growth, international trade, public policy, environment, and social justice. Economics teaches valuable critical thinking skills and problem-solving techniques that are highly valued in all aspects of business and in government. This specialization provides a great preparation for economics and public policy graduate programs, and law school.
