  • The purpose of an economics course is to develop an understanding of economic concepts such as scarcity, marginal analysis, supply, and demand, to provide insight into social and political issues, and to discover how individual actions ultimately affect markets and the economy as a whole.
     
    Economics provides students with the opportunity to experiment with future career paths and practice necessary life skills such as money management and interpersonal relationships. The study of economics provides modern society with a unique perspective to view the world.
     
    Students are taught to think critically and they learn to improve their analytical skills. These various skills will enable society to comprehend perplex information and contemplate meaningful solutions to problems.
