“The Economics program at UMKC will change the way you look and think about economics, you will never see it the same way again. Looking through interdisciplinary lenses, you’ll realize economics isn’t all about goods and services, it’s also about sociology, philosophy, history, political science, anthropology, and so on. The Economics program has taught me to view economics with a thorough and enlightening perspective.”

– Matt Applebury, BA, Current Student

“The most important ability for young students to learn is the one that allows them to understand and explain the world around them. The interdisciplinary approach of UMKC economics has given me a toolbox of understanding in sociology, anthropology, political science, history, and philosophy and emphasized their place within the context of our economic world. The lessons learned in this program will fill anyone with a deep sense of fulfillment.”

– Sam Stockman, BA, Current Student

Our world-renowned professors focus on how society actually works, not simply what is in the textbook, all while leading the charge into the new age of economic thinking. The material is extremely interdisciplinary, as Economics plays a role in every aspect of our lives, so students receive education in almost every field.”
