Major in economics at UW Oshkosh
Economics studies the way in which choices are made across a wide variety of situations, and as a result, can be defined in a few different ways. It’s the study of scarcity, the study of how people use resources and respond to incentives, and the study of decision-making. It often involves topics like wealth and finance, but it’s not all about money. Economics is a broad discipline that helps us understand historical trends, interpret today’s headlines, and make predictions about the coming years. Furthermore, economics often seeks to inform policy in areas as diverse as business, education, the environment, globalization, and health.
