A Christian College of the Liberal Arts & Sciences

Economics

14 hours

Mission: To develop a student’s ability to think clearly about economic cause and effect and to apply economic theories, models, concepts, and analytical methods to real-world problems with a view toward equipping them to serve in fields such as management, finance, international relations, government, law, education, and history. Economics courses at Houghton intentionally consider a Christian world view and its interaction with economic concepts, methods, and policies.

Economic theory provides essential background for careers in business, law, politics, teaching, and all areas of private and public administration.
