Economics (Minor)

Overview

Trinity 10Our economics students are interested in solving puzzles and knowing why people behave as they do. The study of economics helps us answer questions such as the following:

  • What caused the Great Recession?
  • Why, in a country as rich as the United States, do some people still experience poverty?
  • Do women still really earn less than men?

In addition to developing our students’ skills in mathematics and statistics in small class environments, our minors take trips to places like the Federal Reserve Board and the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing.

Our students are prepared for law school, graduate school in economics or economic development, or a successful public or private sector career in business, banking or finance.
