Why Study Economics?
The study of economics offers students an understanding of the structure, institutions, and general economic principles governing the operation of domestic and global economies. Included in courses offered at Prairie State College is the study of the basic economic concepts and theories of economics, as well as close examination of the forces which determine the level of production and employment in the United States and the rest of the world. Economics courses also consider the basic principles of money and banking, economic growth and development, and the nature of the world economy.
