Can I study economics if I won't want to get into politics, finance, or business

<p>I love economics for the "skills" it teaches (creativity, analytical, etc.) but I don't want a job related to politics, development, finance, business and everything in between. </p>

<p>I'm interested in design.
I want to study something I can get my hands on.
The root of my interest in economics probably is the connection between the theory of design, which fascinates me. But I'm looking for other options with an econ background.</p>

<p>I looking for careers other than industrial design, architecture, or landscape architecture. What else can I do with an BA/BS degree in economics related to design or not related to politics, finance, business, or development?</p>

<p>Have you thought about adding a double major onto econ? Maybe design and econ?</p>

<p>I'm in the same boat as you -- love econ as a subject, but not in love with possible job options.</p>

<p>What does econ have to do with design?</p>

<p>Have you looked into AgEcon programs? Most land grant universities offer it as a field of study for post-bac</p>
