Economics is the study of how societies, governments, businesses, households and individuals allocate resources. Most of the world's significant social problems have an economic dimension, making economics a vital part of a comprehensive liberal arts education.

The study of economics can also provide valuable knowledge for making personal decisions, such as choosing financial investments or weighing the benefits and costs of alternative careers. Economics courses are listed under the four-letter rubrics (course prefixes) ECON.


Taking economics classes at North Lake College is an affordable way to get started before transferring to a four-year college or university. NLC liberal arts students benefit from small class sizes, dedicated instructors and free tutoring.
