Economics Ambassadors Help Connect Students to the Department

Two UNT Economics students, Parker Barouch and Mollie Ramsey, have been named Student Ambassadors for the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS). CAS Ambassadors are the undergraduate student representatives from each department in the College of Arts and Science at the University of North Texas. The Ambassadors work with the college and the departments to give an undergraduate student's perspective on various subjects including but not limited to, work load, courses, student activities and organizations, and campus life. They help out with various activities such as Preview Day and Calling Nights. Additionally, the College of Arts and Sciences Ambassadors strive to promote good will through service opportunities and social events.

Why did I major in Economics?

Economics to me is the study of why this world works the way it does and what we can do to change it. When someone tells me something the first thing I think is why and in economics that's what we figure out, why. I chose Economics because I enjoy the study of it and it is everywhere we from loans from a bank to the classroom.

Why did I major in Economics?

As a person with a wide variety of interests, I originally came to UNT with an undeclared major. I took a Microeconomics course, and it really grabbed my attention. The theories and real life applications of economics appealed to me because I could see and learn the real result of important occurrences in the world. From today's stock market to sports to government entities, economics degrees get you into exciting emerging markets. That is something I want to be a part of.
