Bachelor of Arts
Simply put, the study of economics is the study industry trends, labor markets, the prospects for individual companies, and the forces that drive the economy. Economics majors learn to gather, organize, and interpret data, using mathematical formulas and statistics to make calculations. They also create models to predict the impact of investments, policy decisions, industry trends, demographics, climate change, and much more. The discipline is divided into two branches: Macro-economics and Micro-economics. Macro deals with the economy as a whole, including such topics as inflation, unemployment, economic growth, productivity, debt and deficits, and balance of payments with other nations. Micro deals with the allocation of scarce resources to meet the goals of people and businesses, buyers and sellers in product, labor, and credit markets. A degree in economics can be used in many areas, including public policy and finance.
