Economics is the study of how societies produce and exchange goods and services to satisfy material needs. Economists analyze the process of economic growth and identify policies that contribute to economic stability and progress. Students examine the sources of economic growth–how societies produce more of what they need. The major in economics is a good foundation for graduate studies in advanced economics, public policy, law, or business.
