As an economics major, you will learn how to solve problems in business and society. Meredith’s program focuses on the practical applications of economics to everyday situations and dilemmas and offers a high degree of flexibility.

Our students are thoroughly prepared for graduate study in economics, but they are also well-equipped for meaningful careers right out of college. At Meredith, students can customize their program in a way that maximizes their success. Students can also combine an economics major with another major, in preparation for positions in two different fields.
