At Dickinson, economics majors learn to think creatively and deeply about some of the most important economic concerns facing the world today. Rather than study economics from a single perspective as is the norm in American undergraduate education, Dickinson students learn to apply a variety of traditional and nontraditional theoretical perspectives to issues of economic efficiency, economic growth, social justice, power, individual freedom, discrimination, cultural values and environmental destruction. This unique approach provides students with the critical and analytical skills needed for careers in business, government, law and public service.
