Making a strong analysis

The economics major is s sought-after area of study for students who want to develop critical thinking skills through the study of economic theory and its application to important issues such as unemployment, inflation, taxation, economic development, international trade and economic inequality. Our curriculum, embedded in the liberal arts, focuses on developing students' analytical, critical thinking and communication skills and emphasizes the integration of theory and its practical application.
