Economics is a social science concerned with how societies deal with scarcity. Economists explain and predict economic behavior at both the micro- and macro- levels. With an economics degree from ASU, you’ll learn to model economic phenomena in a precise and rigorous way using quantitative tools such as algebra, calculus and statistics.
