In Economics, you will study how the economy works, where it came from, the challenges it creates for social equality, and how individuals engage in modifying and changing economic relations.
The Department of Economics at St. Thomas brings the strengths of a critical liberal arts education to the study of the economy.
We study different ways regions, large and small, manage their resources—whether those resources be financial, natural, goods, or services.
The study of Economics takes a critical look at how regions trade, price, consume and distribute.
It is the job of an economist to be an expert in understanding the various economies in which they work and to prepare best practice advice for the benefit of their region.
Our students 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 in modifying and changing existing economic relations.
As a student of Economics, you will learn to navigate through the ebb and flow nature of the economy in which you live and work.
You will develop intelligence in making informed judgments and providing significant advice related to wealth and resources in your area.
You will also sharpen your analytical skills and appreciate the value and limitations of evidence-based arguments and research.
At the same time, you will achieve advanced communication skills, particularly in your capacity to read and analyze academic and technical writing.
