We make choices every day, both in our personal and professional lives. Economics is the study of how individuals, businesses and societies make decisions and their resulting implications. Majoring in economics provides you with a coherent framework to analyze why specific choices are made, how choices should be made and their resulting effects. Courses emphasize critical thinking, conceptualizing and solving problems and understanding and analyzing data in decision-making.
