Economics is the study of the ways society chooses to use its scarce resources to attain alternative and often conflicting goals.  Economics students learn about these and many other issues central to the well-being of societies. There are two undergraduate programs in economics: a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Science. The programs prepare students for careers in business and government, and for graduate study in economics, law, business, and public policy or administration.
