Economists are involved with conducting research, collecting and analyzing data, monitoring economic trends as well as developing forecasts. They also research a wide variety of issues including energy costs, inflation, interest rates, exchange rates, business cycles, taxes and employment levels, among others.
The economics major at the University of Findlay prepares learners for the challenges of the business world in the 21st century. Majoring in economics helps students develop a critical and analytical thought process in order to successfully operate in a world that is increasingly global. Economics majors build strong written and oral communication skills through courses where group and individual projects are assigned as well. Upon successful completion of the program, students earn a bachelor of science degree in economics and are prepared to pursue a variety of careers in business and government.
Our program is flexible and pairs well with a number of other subjects allowing students to individualize their degree to best fit their career goals. Students pursuing the economics major have the opportunity to complement their degree with a minor or double-major in other areas of business such as:
- Business Management
- International Business
