Bachelor of Science

Studying Economics at Regis 

Economics complements business in that economists are interested in why individuals and firms behave the way they do, rather than in finding ways for specific individuals or firms to increase their own welfare or profits. Economics provides the theoretical foundation for most of the practical and applied courses offered in the business curriculum.

In the B.S. Economics program at Regis, you will study the concepts of macroeconomic and microeconomic behavior, international economics, trade and finance to understand how economic systems function on a number of different levels.
