What will I learn in JCCC's Economics program?

When you study in the Economics program at Johnson County Community College, you’ll learn about national economies and how goods and services are produced, distributed, and consumed.

You make decisions in your everyday life that involve economics.

Overall, our culture depends on the balance of microeconomics and macroeconomics to meet the needs and wants of society.

The economics program at JCCC will teach you about:

  • Unemployment, inflation and growth rates affect Gross Domestic Product (GDP)

If you’re interested in furthering your knowledge of global economies and supply and demand concepts, Johnson County Community College’s economics program is perfect for you.
