Economics Concentration


Economics is the study of how human beings create value for one another. Much of the world was poor until around 1820, and then certain places began to escape poverty. The economics concentration provides a fundamental understanding how and why this happened. Our program provides a foundation in the principles of economics and then focuses on development and international economics.
