Associate Professors Beck (interim chair), Devaraj, Gundersen; Assistant Professor Hsu.

Economics provides a logical ordered way of looking at problems, issues, and policies regarding the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services. It draws upon other social sciences and mathematics to confront a wide range of topics from environmental abuse to economic growth, to business regulation and other governmental interactions with the commercial world. As economics in general deals with choice and decision making, it is of great value on both a personal and a professional level.

Economics majors have a wide range of career choices, including government or business economist, banking economist, investment analyst, trade association economist, and others.

Students who distinguish themselves by high scholarship may be elected to Omicron Delta Epsilon, an international economics honor society.
