The Flexibility of Mixing Liberal Arts with Finance

Looking for a solid foundation for just about any career in the business world? Then Economics is the major for you.

Economics teaches you more than just how a market is created and functions, it teaches you why.

At St. Francis College Economics, students compete against top colleges in the region at the annual College Fed Challenge organized by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. St. Francis recently made the semi-final in this competition.

Our students learn how to incorporate 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 and has helped students gain internships at the United Nations, NGOs, as well as organizations like the Clinton Foundation.

An Economics degree 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:

  • Law
  • Medicine
  • Government
  • Non-profits
  • 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:

  • Finance
  • 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.
