Department of Economics

Economics analyzes the ways in which societies decide what to produce, how to produce it, and who gets it. Because it deals with these fundamental issues of our material well-being, it sheds light on the reasons why some societies are rich and others are poor. This also makes it a powerful tool for analyzing the costs and benefits of decisions, whether they are made by governments, business, or individuals. The Department of Economics at San Diego State University offers a Master of Arts degree in liberal arts and sciences, a Bachelor of Arts degree in liberal arts and sciences, and a minor.
