Program Description

Studying markets, cultures, and governments from the perspective of economics grounded in liberal arts and social science is a powerful complement to a student’s degree in all disciplines. Educational background in theory and application of economic principles provides entry to positions in business, non-government organizations, public policy, and social advocacy. Students with economics backgrounds, for example, are found on Wall Street, in Washington D.C., and throughout all the state capitals. The Cedar Crest College minor provides an introduction to consumer and producer theory plus closer examination of advanced topics such as labor, financial markets, and economic geography.
