Students who choose to major or minor in economics do not always do so because they are interested in becoming economists. Unlike degrees in accounting or nursing, the practical applications of an economics degree are not often obvious. Some of us choose economics simply because we enjoy it, and do not realize until later all of the avenues open to graduates with an economics background.
