Economics studies individuals' values, choices, and behaviors connected to the production, distribution, and consumptions of goods and services. The field is composed of microeconomics (a branch that studies how individuals, households, and businesses allocate scarce resources) and macroeconomics (a branch that studies whole economic systems).
Additional economics courses expand upon these ideas. International economics provides an introductory survey of globalization's economic, political, social, and cultural dimensions. Political economy covers various micro and macro topics related to the United States economy from a systems and institutional perspective.
Economics is a great choice for students seeking an Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer or Business-Associate of Science Oregon Transfer to meet the state of Oregon transfer degree requirements.
