The program in economics is designed to meet four major objectives: to provide a basic knowledge of economic analysis for the student intending to do undergraduate work in preparation for a professional career in business or government; to serve as the core of a liberal arts program for students planning to enter business or industry directly upon graduation; to provide courses preparing students for graduate work in economics; and to present courses that offer insight into the economic problems of the day.
