ECONOMICS: concerns how, given limited resources, households, businesses, and government interact to affect the welfare of society.  According to the Wall Street Journal (July 5, 2005) economics has become the hot major, with a 40% increase in degrees from five years earlier.  Students acquire a foundation in economic theory and study applications in areas such as banking, economic development, international economics, and environmental economics.  The major is attractive to a broad range of employers because it provides critical thinking skills that are valuable in many circumstances. Graduates start careers in industry, banking, and government, or pursue graduate studies in economics or law.
