Why Major in Economics?
Economics is a social science that researches people and how they use their resources with a focus on the economic well-being of society. It can serve as good preparation for careers in business, government, law, and education.
A bachelor’s degree in economics, particularly our BA in Mathematical Economics and Economic Theory, is a great foundation for graduate programs in economics, law, public administration, international affairs, environmental science, management science, or business. A degree in economics also has higher mid-career salaries than finance, accounting, and business majors.
