Are you ready to take your understanding of how the world works to the next level? Economics cannot explain the entirety of human behavior — but it sure explains a lot. The global economics minor at Goshen College is designed to give you a firm grasp of the insights, theories and tools used by economists, regardless of your major.
The study of global economics isn’t just about business. Truly grasping how the global economy works starts with an understanding of geography, culture and the natural world. At GC, our courses explore international and environmental issues alongside basic models of supply and demand. And our May term courses in China, Ecuador and Spain can give you a first-hand look at how goods are produced and trades are made in a variety of cultural contexts.
With the help of your professors and classmates, you’ll learn the key concepts, methods and tools used in economics while gaining a global perspective that future employers will value. Whether you are interested in pursuing a career in international trade, business, economic development, or public policy, the global economics minor will give you the knowledge and skills to succeed in the private, nonprofit or public sectors.
