Reflecting biblical priorities, the economics major has a particular interest in addressing issues of poverty. Building on this interest, the department also offers a community development major, which focuses exclusively on alleviating poverty in the United 美国和世界各地. 

While economics is a very important aspect of poverty, the department recognizes that there are many non-economic factors that contribute to poverty. For this reason, the community development major uses an interdisciplinary approach that draws on multiple fields to address the whole person in a wide range of cultural settings.  

The disciplines of economics and community development have different perspectives, 工具、优势和劣势. 因此,许多学生觉得它很有价值 同时主修这两个专业.
