Supply and demand. Limited resources. Microeconomics. Macroeconomics. Economic justice. Such is the vocabulary of economics, the most highly systematized of the social sciences.

As a discipline, economics employs a wide range of critical thinking skills in a way that lends order to events taking place at local, national, and global levels. A command of its principles thus provides students pursuing a variety of majors and careers with the ability to describe and predict changes and trends in the pattern of public affairs.

At Defiance College the economics minor, open to all majors, is designed to provide students with an appreciation for the principles of constrained choice.
