Economics: The Study of Choice

Economics is the study of how societies organize production, distribution, and the exchange of goods and services and about choices on how scarce resources are allocated to satisfy human wants. Who wins? Who loses? Why? Economists use models that are substantiated by statistical analysis to study important issues such as economic growth, unemployment, productivity and efficiency, poverty and inequality, international trade, and the effects of government policy. 

The Economics Department offers two undergraduate degrees, one through the College of Arts & Sciences, and the other through the Leavey School of Business. Students have the option to choose a concentration in data analysis or mathematical economics. The department also provides foundational courses for the graduate programs.

Why Should I Major in Economics at the Leavey School of Business

The economics major at SCU provides rigorous training in how to analyze important issues based on theory and data and how individuals, firms, and policymakers can use these methods to make good decisions.
