What will I learn?

Economics is a social science that seeks to model the behavior of economic agents (consumers, workers, firms, and government agencies) in an effort to explain the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services in a world where scarcity exists. Economists develop theoretical models to explain and predict economic outcomes and test these predictions using advanced statistical techniques. Topics include the choice of production technologies, wage inequality, schooling decisions, inflation, unemployment, and many other economic phenomena that affect the lives of everyone in our society.

ACCELERATED 3+3 DEGREE

The CSU/Cleveland-Marshall College of Law 3+3 program permits a student who has completed three years of undergraduate study to be admitted to the College of Law to begin J.D. studies. The undergraduate degree will be awarded upon successful completion of the first full year of the J.D. curriculum, thus permitting the student to graduate with both an undergraduate and law degrees in six rather than seven years of full-time study (or its equivalent). In effect, the first year of law school completes the fourth year of the undergraduate degree (serving, in effect, as undergraduate elective courses) and serves as the first year of law school. This arrangement saves both time and money for the student.
