Economics (ECO)

  • Economics is the study of the choices we make coping with scarce resources, and the incentives that influence those choices.  It includes topics ranging from price systems and national income to the forces of supply and demand in various markets.
  • We offer coursework appropriate for students ultimately pursuing an advanced degree in Economics, as well as training appropriate for students in the fields of law, business, finance, marketing, operations research, and urban planning--working in businesses, government agencies, or schools and colleges.

 

Students planning to transfer are advised to verify senior-institution requirements, which vary.
