What You’ll Learn

Economics is the study of the production, development, distribution, and management of wealth and of the dynamics of economic interactions between individuals and groups. Economics majors at UC study advanced economic theory, completing their work with a semester-long senior project research paper, focusing on a contemporary social or economic issue.

A Degree that Works

The major in economics can open a path to employment in government, business, labor, research, or education. There is a demand for those who are broadly trained in the liberal arts without sacrificing the firm foundation of depth in analytical thinking. This program also provides the basis for graduate work in economics and law, or for training for high executive positions.

This program features internship opportunities and a semester-long senior project focusing on a topic of your choice.
