Economics is the study of the issues arising from the allocation of limited resources to meet society’s unlimited human wants. A major in economics provides the first stage for those interested in graduate work in economics, public policy, or business. It also offers a good background for careers in law, business, finance, journalism, government, and international affairs, teaching, industrial relations, and public service.
