The TCU Department of Economics offers a wide range of undergraduate courses and several undergraduate programs, including three economics majors and two economics minors. The programs foster an intellectual community, based on critical inquiry, that explores the human condition while enabling students to develop the capacity to "think like an economist," thereby providing the skills necessary for meaningful work, citizenship and leadership. Upon completion of the undergraduate degree programs, students majoring in economics should be able to analyze human action and interaction in economic terms, formally model economic phenomena, and apply core economic concepts to novel situations.
