The economics program studies how society allocates scarce resources. It is comprised of two parts: microeconomics and macroeconomics. Microeconomics studies individual firms and consumers and models the decisions they make in various types of markets and other institutional settings. Macroeconomics examines national income, growth, unemployment, and prices that result from the interaction of microeconomic agents.
