Economics and Liberal Arts

Economics and Liberal Arts

All economics classes at Union help students develop their critical thinking, analytical, quantitative and writing skills to find answers to their questions about the society and its economy.  Employers are often looking for flexible and analytical thinkers with a broad knowledge base derived from exposure to multiple disciples, not ones who have only learned specific skills in business.  Majoring in economics with a solid background in the liberal arts is a first step to a number of exciting careers and programs of advanced study, such as business, finance, law, journalism, public policy, education, environmental science, medical administration, and international relations.
