Associate Professor Bossard
The Economics major prepares students for a variety of careers in business and government. Economics provides a logical, ordered way of looking at various problems and issues. It draws upon history, philosophy and mathematics to help students examine the choices that individuals and groups make concerning the allocation of their scarce resources to meet their varied and limitless wants. The study of economics at Doane is designed from a liberal arts perspective and emphasizes international economics and financial markets. Economics courses are taken by most students of the university as part of the general education requirements (Doane Core Connections). Pursuit of the major is appropriate for those interested in graduate work in business, law, and economics. The program complements many other areas of study.
