Why study Economics at College of Alameda?

Economics is fascinating since it is a perfect combination of numbers and words, problems and essays, calculations and interpretations. It is both an art and a science subject. Students have the opportunity to build models which give insights into the real world, and then to critique these models on the basis of their assumptions.

Students enjoy economics because it allows them to employ and develop analytical and evaluative skills. Micro and macroeconomics courses assist us to understand how the world works including ourselves, firms, industries, and governments. Economics Department at College of Alameda in collaboration with the business department, offer a variety of courses to meet all learning styles,beign this full term face to face, short term hybrid or fully online courses. We also offer an AA-T degree in economics and continuously work to develop new curriculum that meets students and industry needs.
