Economics is the study of decision-making and public policy. It also studies the decisions of buyers and sellers in product and labor markets. Special topics include labor economics, urban economics, and such headline issues as the environment, poverty, crime, health, education, energy, and the arts. Most graduates use economics as a stepping stone to other occupations. Economic training is wide reaching, and thus, career alternatives are relatively well paid and unusually varied, including business, finance, banking, journalism, and government service.

IU Southeast offers the Bachelor of Arts in Economics.
