Economics (Co-op Available)
The economy is about far more than dollars and sense. At the local, national and global level, the most significant societal issues involve an understanding of economics. Through your studies in Economics, you’ll gain a complete skillset including the methods and tools required to analyze complex economic issues such as unemployment, inflation, economic growth, and market regulation. Your studies will enable you to use national and international data to explore trends and tendencies, test economic models, and will give you the ability to recommend policies addressing inadequacies with market outcomes.
