Perhaps more than any other science, economics is about how change influences the lives of individuals, businesses, and nations. Available courses will cover both traditional micro and macro theory. In macro, you will look at national and international fluctuations, monetary policies, the effects of the national debt, budget deficits and the field of money and banking. In micro, you look at how firms operate, the functions of supply and demand and various types of competition.

In addition to the required core classes on the degree completion plan, each student is required to complete various classes that specialize in economics.
