At Berry, our faculty members view economics as being
everywhere and about everything because economics is a powerful lens for
understanding human decision making. Economics has been applied to issues
as diverse as crime, global warming, and the wealth and poverty of nations. With course offerings such as sports economics,
health economics, and environmental economics in addition to core areas of
microeconomics, macroeconomics, and economic development, our curriculum
reflects the breadth of economics applicability.
Berry’s economics faculty members are committed teachers and
scholars, bridging the liberal arts and business curricula. Courses in
economics develop critical thinking, communication, and data analysis skills,
thereby providing excellent preparation for jobs or postgraduate study.
Berry economics graduates have gone on to successful careers in public
policy, law, financial advising, banking, insurance, and many other
fields. Whatever students’ career ambitions, economics is an interesting
and rewarding field of study. Economics at Berry—Home of the Head,
the Heart, and the Invisible Hand!
