“[My professors] personal attention helped me in so many ways: gaining relevant work experience through my on-campus job in the department, navigating the application process for top graduate schools, applying my statistical and writing skills as a professional researcher and even returning to Mary Baldwin as an instructor!”
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 available through the College for Women and Adult Degree Program in Staunton.
