Economics:  The fundamental major.

You may not know it—we all use economics every day.

Economics is the science of decision-making and how to create value through trade. Since we make decisions and we trade every day, we all use economics – all the time. Economics is also fundamental for many other disciplines: finance, data science, marketing, and management all rest on economic tools and techniques.

UW Economics graduates have gone on to high-paying careers in a wide variety of fields including law, finance, business, government and academia. Talk to one of us today to discover how an Economics degree from the University of Wyoming can support your career goals.
