Balloti learning center

As an economics major, you’ll be part of a vibrant community of students, scholars, and professors who synthesize data to solve social issues and substantiate policy decisions. You’ll be treated like a colleague: Expect to work alongside professors on key research and policy issues; many of our scholars are frequently called on to provide policy advice and media commentary.

Our program provides a broad study of economics, from micro- and macroeconomics to statistics. With these skills, you can embark on a career in international relations, finance, government, or public policy.

An economics major will teach you to:

  • Use logical thought to solve problems
  • Observe and infer from data
  • Present ideas in writing and speech
  • Use economic tools and methods to analyze issues, such as crime, unemployment, inflation, taxes, sports, and voting behavior
