Economics


Return to Programs by Area:  Majors and Minors Return to: Programs by Area: Majors and Minors

The Saint Anselm College economics major provides a foundation of both theoretical and applied courses in the area of microeconomics - where the focus is on individual business, consumer and worker decision making, and macroeconomics - dealing with national and global policy affecting economic growth, unemployment and national income distribution.  The career opportunities for our economics majors are with business firms, banking institutions, government agencies and non-profit organizations.  Economics majors also go on to obtain law degrees, Master’s degrees in public policy and economics, and Ph.D. degrees in economics and finance.

Requirements for the Economics major:  Principles of Micro- and Macroeconomics (EC141, EC142), Business Statistics (BU121), Intermediate Micro- and Macroeconomics (EC242, EC241), and any 5 economics electives.  Financial Accounting (AC111) may be counted as an economics elective.
