Why Economics?

Hannah - Why Econ?

The Department of Economics shares with other departments a commitment to the Mission and Aims of Brigham Young University. It has been our goal to purposefully design a curriculum that will provide our majors with one of the best undergraduate economics programs in the country. ​

​A careful study of economics facilitates effective decision making and enhances our students' understanding, participation in, and contribution to the world in which they live in areas such as: ​

  • Economic growth
  • Levels of employment
  • Inflation
  • International trade
  • Globalization
  • Taxation
  • Finance ​
  • Consequences of alternative economic policies
  • Costs and benefit analysis of alternative proposals​​
