Overview

Economics is the study of how people behave and make decisions — how we use our resources, how we deal with issues like climate change, which career we choose, and more. These decisions involve trade-offs comparing the costs and benefits, and we’re constantly considering these in our everyday life.

At UC, there are lots of opportunities to gain real-world experience through industry projects, internships, clubs, overseas study trips, and more.
