Are you interested in concepts like supply and demand? Are you curious about human behavior? Do you enjoy working with numbers? If yes, then a degree in economics could be a good fit for you.

In this program, you’ll study how people’s choices to satisfy their wants affect the consumption, production and trade of scarce resources. You’ll study topics such as inflation, taxes, pricing, employment, poverty and capitalism. This two-year program prepares you to transfer to a four-year college to earn a bachelor's degree in accounting, economics or another business-related field.

Whether you want a career in business, government or social sciences, the versatile economics degree will provide the framework for a variety of challenging career options.
