College of Management

This degree program is designed to give students in-depth education in one of the applied social sciences. Economics is the social science which investigates the conditions and laws affecting the production, distribution and consumption of wealth in an organized society. Students who major in economics use their degree in working for business, government and other institutions serving in various staff and management positions. Many students combine the economics major with another related major such as political science, information and computer sciences, business or communications, which broadens the range of options available to them. Others plan to do graduate work in economics or other areas, which qualifies them to serve as economists or other specialists in government, business or higher education.
