  • Course description

    Economists study how goods and services are produced, bought and sold. Economics doesn't only deal with concepts of money -- it also delves into human behavior, the big variable in the function of each economy. Although economics is sometimes teasingly referred to as "the dismal science," for economists it's a rich, challenging subject with plenty of territory to explore.

    In its basic form, economics provides us with a set of tools for predicting how the market and the economy will respond to certain events. Understanding the underlying forces at work helps individuals and organizations create better financial strategies.

    As an economics major at Lewis University, you will study topics such as:
    • Basic and applied economic theory
    • Essential economics tools for providing decision-makers with concise, structured financial information
    • How to use cutting edge technology to improve your abilities
    • How to forecast practical economic variables

    At Lewis, the business curriculum is practical and career-focused. Guided by experienced faculty members, you will get the hands-on knowledge you need to succeed in your future career.
