Economics is a way of thinking about every aspect of human behavior. At its core, the "economic approach" is the application of basic principles of logic and rational choice to business decisions, public policy issues and everyday life.

A variety of courses are offered, enabling students to apply economic theory and quantitative analysis to topics such as economic development, environmental policy, labor markets, monetary policy and other important issues. Our graduates are sought after for positions in banking, finance and management. In addition, many students have gone on to obtain graduate degrees in economics, law and business administration at schools such as Chicago, Duke, Oxford, Vanderbilt, Virginia, Yale and other top-tier universities.

Department of Graphic Communications

Graphic communications can be described as the processes and industries that create, develop, produce and disseminate products utilizing or incorporating words or images to convey information, ideas and feelings.

When you walk into the laboratories of the graphic communications department, you will see something different than any other program teaching graphics in the country – hands-on involvement of faculty and students with various activities related to graphic communications. Every student completes his/her own project from start to finish. They design a digital or printed piece and produce it. There is not a separate class for each skill. This is more representative of the industry and allows students to see how the details of each assignment fit into the big picture. With each successive class, the difficulty, detail and breadth of each assignment increases. Students develop a variety of skills, knowledge and talents that are highly sought after in all graphic communications-related industries.
