The Flexibility of Mixing Liberal Arts with Finance
An Economics degree from St. Francis College enables students to draw on their technical and creative talents in pursuit of a financially and personally rewarding career.
Economics is the study of how society is organized to produce goods and services, and how these goods and services are distributed around the world. An understanding of finance is crucial. Our students learn how to incorporate significant features of the “real world” into the basic “models” of how an economy works. The department is particularly strong in its coverage of international economic relations.
Economics is one of the fastest growing majors in the country. That’s partly because a degree in Economics is flexible and allows students to pursue a variety of career options. Most Economics majors enter the business world, but many are also successful in:
- International relations
- Academic roles
Economics majors at St. Francis College enjoy the flexibility of a broad liberal arts education, as well as opportunities for more specialized training. Our students can choose from three concentrations within the Economics major:
- International Economics
- Public Policy
Many of our graduates also go on to pursue graduate studies in economics as well as business, law and public administration.
