Why Study Economics?

Economics is a social science that helps explain the mysteries of how people and society operate. It helps you understand the past and the present and make predictions.

You will learn a variety of study methods, problem-solving techniques and perspectives to better understand the worldviews of others and become a life-long learner. You’ll learn the importance of history, shared experiences and the personal and social conflicts that affect social change.
