Economics Course Descriptions

Our Department


Majoring in Economics provides a student with a complimentary blend of the perspective gained from a liberal arts education with the practical skills necessary for intelligent decision making and administration in business and government. Economics majors at Armstrong receive a sound theoretical foundation in economic theory and economic statistics, as well as exposure to applied fields, such as money and banking, labor economics, public finance, and international economics, to name just a few. Class sizes in all courses, including those at the introductory level, are relatively small, and there is ample opportunity for students to interact with faculty.

Center for Regional Analysis

The Center for Regional Analysis meets the applied research needs of Savannah's business and community organizations. Areas of concentrated research include regional economic forecasting, economic impact analysis, economic development and business expansion, tourism development, survey-based research, and specialty reports on topics of state, regional and local interest. The Center's activities are intended to appeal to a broad range of constituencies, and the Center stands ready to enter into cooperative partnerships with public, private, and community organizations.
