Economics

Learning economics prepares students to make more informed choices as citizens of their country and the world through understanding how the world's scarce resources can be used to satisfy human needs and desires. The Economics Program at Mills offers courses in the theoretical foundations of decisions faced by individuals in the labor market, by business firms in maximizing profits, by governments in choosing and financing public programs, and by nations in improving their standards of living.

The economics major prepares students for a wide range of careers, as well as graduate study in law, economics, or business. The major develops analytic skills applicable in many different settings and helps students develop mathematical, written, and oral communication skills.

The San Francisco Bay Area offers a wide variety of internships that enhance the academic program.
