Economics is the social science that explores the problem of relative scarcity and its implications for problems of resource allocation, economic stability, growth and distribution.

In the course of completing your degree in economics, you will learn concrete skills as well as work habits and modes of thinking that will make you an invaluable team member. Completing a degree in economics shows you have the ability to think critically, work hard and solve problems, not just that you understand how macro- and micro-economics work. Completing your degree in economics will open the doors for you to go to law school, pursue a graduate degree or begin work in a business-related field.
