The major and minor programs in economics offer a set of required and elective courses designed to develop students’ abilities for analyzing complex choices in a rapidly changing world. Two emphases within the major in economics, a traditional liberal arts program and business economics are available. Both prepare students for careers in finance, private business, education and government.

Political Science
The ancient Greek philosopher, Aristotle, indicated that among all areas of human inquiry, political science is the "master science". Not only is the study of politics challenging, rewarding, and important, but it often leads to careers in foreign and domestic government service, higher education and the practice of law.
