The Associate of Science (A.S.) and Associate of Arts (A.A.) degrees in Economics at Motlow prepare you for transfer to a university through the Tennessee Transfer Pathway (TTP).
For any career related to finance, an economics degree is a good foundation to build on. Economics examines questions related to resource allocation, incentives, and wealth, among others. Employment of economists is projected to grow 14 percent from 2019 to 2029, much faster than the average for all occupations.
Motlow’s Economics degree focuses on the intersection of money, markets, resources, scarcity, and how those factors impact individuals, and societies. It prepares you for careers that require numerical, analytical, and problem-solving skills.
