Economics

Whitney KerthStudents can earn a major or a minor in Economics in the College of Business. Economics courses develop students’ logical thinking skills, understanding of applied statistical analysis, and communication abilities.

Many Economics majors decide to double major in Finance or in non-business majors such as philosophy, history, political science, or mathematics. Economics is a particular good choice for students planning on law school: on average, economics majors and philosophy majors do better than any other popular major on the LSAT Admissions test.
