What is Economics, General Transfer Emphasis?

The Economics emphasis is designed to prepare students for transfer to a bachelor’s degree granting institution.  This program prepares students for more advanced study in a pathway through which students can pursue careers in business and government.

What will I learn?

All students who complete a degree will be able to do the following:

  1.    Communicate effectively through oral and written modes, using conventions appropriate to their audience and      purpose, including critical listening, reading, and research skills.
  2.    Evaluate the significance of humanity’s cultural heritage and diversity and its development in a historical                  and/or global context through critical and analytical methodologies.
  3.    Connect knowledge of social and cultural institutions to issues of personal or public   importance.
  4.    Analyze historical and contemporary issues by drawing on historical contexts.
  5.    Demonstrate a broad understanding of scientific principles and concepts.
  6.    Apply relevant mathematical modeling to a variety of applied or theoretical problems.

In addition, students studying economics will learn both national level accounting information as well as firm level resource management. National level accounting includes issues relating to the banking system, inflation and government  policy decisions. Firm level resource management includes information regarding all elements of how firms compete efficiently.
