Economics & Finance Major, B.A. Degree

The Study of economics provides students with a well-grounded liberal arts education, intentionally integrating the Christian faith with the study of economic activity. The economics major helps students develop skills in analysis and decision-making by thoroughly grounding them in the theory and practice of economic reasoning. The program prepares students to work in business, finance and public policy related fields and is especially appropriate for students planning to attend law school or graduate programs in economics, business and public administration.
