third largest Department at the College of Wooster as measured by the
number of students who have chosen to major with us. We are proud of
our comprehensive program and encourage you to obtain more information
about the Department and its offerings. This page and those that are

including a FAQ about Independent Study, links to useful economics and
business data sources, and course requirement worksheets that you can
