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.

“For me, the vibe at Goucher was very welcoming, and the student body was really passionate, which is what I was looking for. It really encouraged me to get involved in things so early.”
