Economics (Transfer)

If you want more than a basic understanding of what is going on in the world and the economy in which you live, you can find it by pursuing Triton’s Economics degree. Economics examines how societies, businesses and individuals produce and consume goods and services while dealing with scarcity and choice. Built on a strong core of economic theory, supplemented by mathematics and data analysis, you will learn from and interact with faculty and adjunct instructors who use rigorous theoretical and empirical tools to study the decisions of individuals, businesses and governments.

Earning an Associate’s degree at Triton can provide a seamless transfer process into private and public colleges and universities in the state of Illinois. From the moment you enroll at Triton College you will have a network of success to ensure you reach your goals. With the help of our dedicated advisors and transfer center you will be supported in developing a tailor fit academic plan, explore your options and transition in to the university of your choice. 

Triton is also a participant of the Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI), a statewide agreement that allows transfer of the completed Illinois General Core Curriculum between participating IAI institutions.
