Prepare for a range of careers in business and government through the study of economics, including financial and social factors that influence how economies work. Earn an associate’s degree that enables you to transfer to a four-year college.
More than raw numbers and scientific study, economics is the study of human choice. It seeks to understand the established social arrangements for producing and distributing goods and services, and to determine a wise use of limited economic resources to ensure people receive the maximum benefit at the lowest cost.
Careers for graduates are numerous, since their understanding of the economy, in addition to their problem-solving and critical-thinking skills, is applicable to a wide range of activities in business and government.
The following courses are recommended for economics majors:
- ECON 201: Microeconomics
- ECON 202: Macroeconomics
