An economics degree can prepare you for careers in law, industry, banking, accounting, private consulting, teaching and government service. This discipline can give you a better understanding of the world and will help clarify the process of decision making. Economics teaches us how to analyze costs and benefits so that we can make more intelligent choices. Economics also addresses the impact of decisions upon equity (fairness), particularly as measured by the distribution of wealth and income.

You don’t have to be an economics major to benefit from courses in this discipline. We encounter economic problems in all areas of our lives and throughout society, economics provides useful intellectual training for individuals who simply wish to become better educated prior to making a lifelong career decision.
