Get a handle on the world

You probably see news about the economy everywhere, from newspapers to the internet to TV, but do you understand what it means? Economic concepts represent real world factors that have a direct impact on your life. When you take up the study of economics, you'll gain a better understanding of the complexity of the economy and how you fit in. The professors in the economics department will teach you to think critically and analytically, help you understand systems as diverse as banking and healthcare, and prepare you to enter careers across a wide range of occupations.
