In USAO’s economics program, students with very different worldviews wrestle with complex questions and often disagree on many issues, but they all gain exceptional skills in how to think analytically, thoroughly, and with boundless curiosity into the patterns of behavior emerging from human interaction.

A multidisciplinary social science, economics uses methodology drawn from history, political science, mathematics, philosophy, psychology, sociology and even literature to understand economic processes.

Our economics students graduate well-prepared for careers in business, government, education, banking, and finance. Those pursuing advanced degrees find that law schools and graduate schools are looking for exactly the kind of thoughtful students who attend USAO.
