Economics

AREA CHAIR: Michael T. Saliba, Ph.D.,
OFFICE: 301 Miller Hall

This degree program is co-sponsored by the Colleges of Arts and Sciences and Business Administration. Economics is the study of human behavior as it relates to the production, exchange, and consumption of goods and services. Emphasis is on the conceptual framework and analytical skills necessary to an understanding of complex interrelationships among individuals, businesses, and governments. The program also is designed to enable students to function as intelligent and informed citizens and to be prepared for careers in business, industry, and government. Further, the program provides an excellent basis for graduate study in economics or business as well as being an excellent preparation for law school.
