The Economics Program provides students with a theoretical economics foundation along with statistical training that prepares them to think analytically to solve complex problems and to recognize the human behavior component of economics as a social science.
Why Study Economics at CSN?
Our associate degrees in economics and applied financial economics are designed for direct transfer to a four-year institution. Upon completion of a bachelor’s or doctoral degree, students can pursue careers such as budget analysts, loan officers, economists, and statisticians.
These and other careers related to economics typically require a more advanced degree.
The Economics degree builds upon a theoretical foundation and statistical training that prepares students to think analytically and critically to solve complex problems as well as to recognize the component of human behavior reflecting economics as a social science.
The Associate of Arts Degree with an Economics Emphasis offers the choice between a General Economics track and an Applied Financial Economics (AFE) track. The General Economics track is a general transfer program for students who are planning to transfer to a baccalaureate-level program.
The Associate of Arts Degree with an Economics Emphasis offers the choice between a General Economics track and an Applied Financial Economics (AFE) track.
