Economics is the study of the allocation of scarce resources (including: our time, our energy, our built capital, and our natural resources). Economics examines ways to get the most benefit out of our resources. If you are interested in a structured system of thought that allows for rational, well-thought decision making, economics will interest you.
Economics will be of interest to students who intend to transfer to a full economics program at another university, business students and those looking for a well-rounded education. Economists play important roles in: government (all departments), banks, other financial institutions and research centres.
