Economics and Economics Education
Economists study how markets work in order to determine what is produced, how it is produced, and how income is distributed. Among the many topics studied in economics are such things as the role and impact of international trade, the impact of monopoly on the economy, and the problems of unemployment and inflation. An understanding of economic principles is critical to success in business and to the design of effective government policy.
The minor in Economics provides students in other degree programs an opportunity to study the basic concepts and methodology in Economics.
