Overview

Bachelor of Arts - Economics

Economics at St. Thomas University brings the strengths of a critical liberal arts education to the study of the economy. 

Students study different ways regions, large and small, manage their resources—whether those resources be financial, natural, goods, or services.

You will investigate not only how the economy works, but where it came from, the challenges it creates for social equality and social justice, and how people engage to modify and change existing economic relations.

What Sets Economics at STU Apart? 

  • It is one of few programs that offers an honors program in mainstream economics and political economy, which focuses on the relations between the economy, politics, and social outcomes. 
  • Small, engaging classes that emphasize personal interaction, discussion, and debate. 
  • Students can complete a minor in business that provides background in key aspects like accounting, marketing, personal financial planning, and management.  
  • Lectures and seminars are always taught by professors—not teaching assistants—which means students learn from experts in the field.   
  • Students benefit from faculty expertise in international trade, the economics of happiness, historical political economy, ecological economics, and the political economy of women.

You might be interested in studying Economics if…

  • You are interested in the economy
  • You want to become an informed citizen
  • You want to make sense of world events, make informed financial decisions, and shape public policy
