The Economics degree builds upon a theoretical foundation and statistical training that prepares students to think analytically and critically to solve complex problems, as well as to recognize the component of human behavior reflecting economics as a social science. The Associate of Arts Degree with an Economics Emphasis offers the choice between a General Economics track and an Applied Financial Economics (AFE) track. The General Economics is a general transfer program for students who are planning to transfer to a baccalaureate-level program. The AFE program will assist in preparing for a multitude of investment and risk management licenses for those seeking to continue in that path. Completion of the AFE track will include an Internship in Financial Economics with interactive participation of financial institutions.
