Why Study Economics at New College?

At New College, our Economics AOC is designed to help you successfully confront the challenges of a rapidly changing world. The emphasis is on providing you with a conceptual framework with which to understand and assess the events and decisions that affect society at large as well as your own personal life. Upon graduation, should you continue on to graduate school or enter the job market? Should Europe abandon the euro? Should the Federal Reserve raise or lower interest rates in order to stabilize the economy? By mastering the tools of economic analysis, you will be able to evaluate questions such as these in a critical and systematic manner.
