Economics Program


The curriculum is structured to meet the high standard of proficiency required in the economics profession. Majors offer courses in basic, intermediate, and advanced economics theory supplemented by policy analysis.

In the area of economics theory, the student is exposed to concepts in microeconomics and macroeconomics.

In the area of policy analysis, the students are exposed to money and banking, public finance and taxation, foreign trade and investment, and labor economics. The aim of policy analysis courses is to enable the student to understand and explain the effects of government economic policies, inflation and recession, export and import trade upon the gross national product, productivity, the balance of payments, and the distribution of income.
