Economics at Providence College

Why Study Economics at Providence College?
A successful and impactful career in economics today requires much more than knowledge of economics; it requires that we go beyond the “what” and have the ability to answer the big questions of “what then?” That’s why our program is designed to not only provide knowledge of economics but an understanding of the social science that gives that knowledge critical context in the real world.

While the focus of an economics education is centered on the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services, our program takes pride in being well rounded — a fitting approach to a discipline with deep roots in the liberal arts. Yes, you’ll learn about business analysis, economic forecasting, and probability theory. You’ll also hone your writing skills, enhance your reading and listening capabilities, and develop your ability to think creatively — in short, you’ll be in demand after you graduate.
