Our Economics degree is firmly rooted in the real world. You’ll study the ways in which people and businesses respond to incentives, and the production and allocation of resources. In the first two years you’ll cover both macroeconomics – the economy as a whole including themes such as unemployment, taxation, investment and inflation; and microeconomics – the behaviour and motivations of individuals and companies. You’ll also learn to apply quantitative techniques to investigate relationships between economic variables. Final-year options apply this core knowledge to more specialised areas such as labour, industrial and health economics, technology and innovation, and business cycles. You can also choose from a number of finance modules. Throughout your studies you'll have use of a dedicated Bloomberg trading room, giving you access to the same economic and financial data used by practitioners in industry.

Instruction in economics on the Santa Barbara campus antedates the establishment of the Department of Economics. It began in 1909 at the State Normal School of Manual Arts and Home Economics, a 2-year professional training school. The school evolved through several name and location changes and in 1944 the Santa Barbara State College was designated as the third University of California campus with an enrollment of 1,464. By 1955 the campus was settled in its present home on the former Marine Air Force base next to the ocean. 1960 signified the inception of the Department of Economics, an autonomous department within the Division of Social Sciences of the College of Letters and Science. Our first Chair was Fred Halterman - his tenure saw 241 economics majors. Three years later the major count had doubled to 500, and today it is over 2000. The department has numerous affiliations with research units, housed both in and outside of the department and university. After Professor Finn Kydland received the 2004 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics, the Laboratory for Aggregate Economics and Finance (LAEF) was established. LAEF, headed by Professor Kydland, hosts workshops and intensive seminars focusing on a specific topic or hypothesis involving modern Economics. In addition to LAEF, the department also houses the Experimental and Behavioral Economics Laboratory (EBEL), which supports research in experimental and behavioral economics. Research in environmental and resource economics was enhanced in 2009 when the UC Office of the President established the UC Center for Energy and Environmental Economics, based at both UC Berkeley and UC Santa Barbara. Our most recent affiliated research unit is The Leonard and Gretchan Broom Center for Demography. This center was established in October 2011 as an interdisciplinary research center at the University of California, Santa Barbara, with generous funding from Leonard and Gretchan Broom. The department’s graduate program stresses a strong foundation in theory and econometrics, and offers students the unique opportunity of not only earning a Ph.D. in Economics, but through our joint efforts with the Donald Bren School of Environmental Science and Management, provides an emphasis in Economics and Environmental Science. Recent graduates of the program have been placed at Vanderbilt University, University of Virginia, The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, RAND, University of Sydney and many other private and public institutions.
For over a century, the Department of Economics at MIT has played a leading role in economics education, research, and public service. Francis Amasa Walker, MIT’s third president, introduced undergraduate studies in economics at MIT. Walker, who rose to the rank of Brigadier General in the Civil War and directed the 1870 U.S. Census, was a leading economist of his day. He was a founder and president of the American Economic Association. In the early part of the twentieth century, Davis R. Dewey, the editor of the American Economic Review for twenty years and a longtime chairman of the MIT Economics Department, played a major role in preserving and expanding economics at MIT. In 1937, the Department added graduate courses leading to a master’s degree. Four years later, in 1941, it inaugurated the PhD program that is renowned worldwide. MIT’s approach to graduate training in economics has been widely emulated at other leading institutions.
Webster's bachelor of arts in economics provides a foundation for how the global economy works: including the study of institutions, concepts, policy and tools of analysis. The BA in Economics helps students explore the factors that determine production, distribution, and consumption of resources. Students gain an understanding of basic economics concepts, and how policy changes impact the economy. Expert faculty help students apply micro and macro economic concepts to real-world settings. The bachelor of arts (BA) in economics at Webster University provides students with a foundation in the discipline of economics. Students develop an analytical mindset alongside a strong economic awareness of the world. Students pursue one of three tracks, math, business or liberal arts, which in addition to core and specialized elective coursework, allows students to tailor their economics studies to suit their interests and strengths.
The study of economics is the study of choices. How should a society choose to allocate and distribute its resources? Which needs should have the highest priority, and which are less important? Economists study how people use their limited resources in an attempt to satisfy their unlimited wants. They create scientific models to explain why people behave the way they do, and use these models along with observations of the world to analyze and explain why things happen the way they do. Based on this knowledge, they propose solutions to problems that may at first seem surprising, but that prove to work well in practice. Economists work in all areas of government and industry, in positions ranging from stock market analysis to sports marketing and banking regulation.
Major, Minor The study of economics investigates the consequences of scarcity, which forces people, organizations and governments to choose among competing objectives. Economics looks at these choices and how they affect the production of goods and services, market prices, national output, unemployment, inflation, economic growth and the use and distribution of resources within and across nations.
Located in historic New Jersey Hall, the Economics Department at Rutgers University–New Brunswick has a long tradition of excellence in research, teaching, and service. Our faculty represent a broad array of disciplines within economics. Our faculty are leaders in their areas of research and lecture to universities, government agencies, and institutions around the world. Our faculty are regular members of national panels and research groups. The Economics Department offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Among the most popular at Rutgers, our undergraduate offerings include a Major and Minor in Economics, an Economics Honors Program, and a variety of certificate programs. For graduate students, there is a Ph.D. in Economics with financial support; while the program is relatively small, it is very high quality. Our graduate students are employed at universities in the U.S. and around the world, at government agencies both here and abroad, and at numerous prominent private sector employers.
Economists are interested in the choices people make when they shop, when they choose jobs, and when they vote as well as the choices made in State Capitols, at the Federal Reserve, and on Wall Street. For example, understanding the sources of economic growth, differences in income across countries, the rate of inflation, and the appropriate policy responses to recessions are fundamental issues in macroeconomics, which is the study of the performance of an economy as a whole. Microeconomists study households, firms, and markets. For example, why has the price of energy fallen relative to other prices, why do housing prices vary across locations, why do similar people earn such different pay, and why do firms produce and price things the way they do? Economists participate in debates about policy toward climate change, international trade, taxes, healthcare, immigration, and crime. At a deeper level, the fundamental institutions that support economic activity are important as well. Such institutions—legal principles and laws, social norms, even families and communities—facilitate market and non-market transactions, investment in human and physical capital, innovation and technological change, and social and geographic mobility. This leads to questions about the role of government in regulating, taxing, subsidizing, or otherwise affecting markets and related institutions. Vanderbilt’s program in economics begins with principles of macroeconomics followed by principles of microeconomics. We offer other courses that have only introductory courses as prerequisites, including labor economics, money and banking, Latin American development, economic history of the US, and strategic analysis. We require a statistics course with calculus as a prerequisite, usually our ECON 1500. Students must complete two semesters of calculus before moving to the intermediate level courses.
The private secondary school Internatgymnasium Schloss Torgelow is located in the castle with the same name and offers tuition on a daily basis and on a boarding basis: there are separate residences for boys and girls in the territory (a separate form of study is accepted here). The school was founded in 1994 by the Lehmann family - they formulated the basic school principles and postulates that are followed up to now. The philosophy is based on the principles of high academic literacy, positive attitude to people and the world around them, openness and readiness to perceive a new one, striving for self-education, self-development and disclosure of one's own talents and abilities.
The castle in which the school is located is located on the shore of Lake Torgelov, in a picturesque and beautiful place in the north of Germany (the resort town of Voren): thanks to the proximity of the lake, students have the opportunity to practice various water sports (rowing, walking Sailing, swimming, other types of outdoor activities). The distance to Berlin is about 160 kilometers, you can get to Hamburg in about 2 hours.
The institution helps the active, gifted students in every possible way, supports them all-round and helps to find their place in the modern world. A lot of this is facilitated by fruitful cooperation with several universities: specialists and teachers often conduct classes and lectures on oratorical skills, the ability to speak in the public, and correctly allocate time (time management). In addition, much attention is paid to the study of foreign languages: in addition to the subjects of the compulsory program, each student studies at least one language, optionally, and foreign boarders additionally attend supporting German courses. You can choose English, French, Chinese or Russian (on request), Spanish or classical Latin.
