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
- International trade
- Consequences of alternative economic policies
- Costs and benefit analysis of alternative proposals
