In our society, economics is the main reason behind many life-changing decisions for individuals and organizations alike. Understand how the economy works, and how economic factors influence the cost of everyday life, and the economic life of organizations and governments.
Trinity’s economics professors illustrate conceptual frameworks like macro- and micro-economics by applying them to current issues in the news. Students learn to critically analyze how US economic policy can affect this country’s citizens, and have the opportunity to intern in the offices of some of the nation’s most powerful policy-makers and regulatory agencies.
