The economics major in Fairmount College provides excellent preparation for law school, for additional academic study in economics, business and other fields, and for careers in public service. The study of economics is useful in helping students develop both their skill in critical thinking and their ability to use analytical tools to solve complex problems. It is a major that lays a foundation for many career paths.
Teaching of Economics
Because Kansas Department of Education regulations governing the licensure of secondary economics teachers are very specific and contain requirements beyond the economics major, students planning to be teachers of economics should contact a secondary social studies advisor in the College of Education for program planning.
