Program description

Economics Associate in Arts Degree for Transfer

As a Social Science, economics studies human behavior, including the choices that we make arising from the problem of scarcity. Economics helps us understand how people make decisions, especially through benefit/cost analysis, and examines how incentives affect our decision-making process.

The study of economics provides training in deductive reasoning and analytical thinking that students can apply to a wide variety of disciplines and career choices. In fact, economics is one of the top ten highest paying college majors. Examples of career options with an economics degree include:

  • Private-business positions
  • Government policy analysis
  • Research
  • Non-Profit managing
  • International relations
  • Financial analysis/planning
  • Education
  • Consulting
  • Urban and regional planning
  • Banking
  • Law
