The aim of courses in economics is to train students to think analytically about economic and social problems and rationally about personal, public, and business decisions. Economics consists of a structured body of analytical principles that can equip the student with a logical, consistent approach both to the great issues of our time and to the everyday choices that confront consumers, political leaders, businesses, and all individuals.

“Professors are there for me and push me, but they are also there to talk to me if I’m having problems, and they’ll help me improve. Their goal is to make you succeed. It’s a good place to learn how to go off on your own.”
