“I think my economics courses did what a good liberal arts education should do. I was challenged to think outside the box, apply my course work to my own life on my own terms, and I still think about issues raised in class.”
Through the lens of economics, students attain an extraordinarily powerful and flexible set of tools. Economics majors develop highly desired skills such as analytical thinking, research, quantitative reasoning, and an understanding of computer technology. The Economics Department at Mary Baldwin College offers an extraordinary combination of the liberal arts and career preparation.
Students can pursue a BA or BS with a major in economics. Economics also is available as a minor.
Economics is a part of MBC’s School of Social Sciences, Business, and Global Studies and is available through the College for Women and Adult Degree Program in Staunton.
