Students studying together


Economics is about how wealth (goods and services) is made, used, and shared. This program will teach you the skills to understand basic economics and policy. You'll learn to decode graphs and statistics about the economy. You'll also study local and global economics while learning to think more critically. If you want a four-year degree in economics, be sure to talk to your MHCC advisor and your future college to make sure all credits will transfer. You can go on to law school, business, politics, and more.
