economics

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.
