Economics

Earn your economics degree at Butler Community College

Economics is about more than money

Economics helps you understand how resources are used.  You learn what happens if taxes go up—or down. You understand why you should, or shouldn’t, relocate a business. And you analyze what it would take (cost, design, or environmental matters) for someone to buy a more expensive car that gets better gas mileage. Studying economics at Butler gives you real-world knowledge that you can transfer to a four-year college.  

Estimated tuition for Economics = $10,020**

**This includes two years of tuition based on being a Kansas Resident and taking 60 credit hours, estimated fees, and estimated books. Housing and meal plans not included. Fees may vary depending on specific degree path.
