Marietta’s economics program teaches you to look at the big picture and study the relationship between business and the economy. At the same time, we stress the theoretical side of economics and the mathematical and statistical techniques you'll need. Economics examines how we use limited resources, which means economists deal with all kinds of real-world problems: the budget deficit, the war on terrorism, the environment, unemployment, education.
You will gain valuable experience through your senior research project as well as internships with our local, national and international networks. Students work closely with faculty to produce scholarly research papers; many have presented their work at conferences and competitions.
