The economics program at WOU is all about the big picture. You’ll be exposed to the full range of application of economic theory including international trade, management decision-making, financial markets, labor markets and e-commence. Many economics majors complete an internship or practicum as part of their electives, so you’ll get a chance to learn practical skills in the field that will equip you for a wide range of employment options after graduation.
Students who minor in economics will gain a strong foundational understanding of macro and micro economics with a little algebra thrown in for fun. This is another great option for people who might want to be business owners one day, along with a business minor or entrepreneurship minor.
