Enhance your analytical skills as you learn how to use economics to better understand human behavior. You'll also focus on quantitative skills and the development of rational thought and critical thinking.

To build a solid base of understanding, you'll take foundational courses in microeconomics, macroeconomics and mathematics. Then you will refine those skills in statistics and intermediate economic theory classes. In upper-level courses, these reasoning abilities are applied to specific situations with a particular focus on understanding social problems from an economics perspective.

You can explore economic principles and theory through research, internship and study abroad.
