About the Program

Economics is at the root of business decisions, government policy making, and global relations. As a course of study, it can lead to diverse career opportunities, and is often viewed favorably as excellent preparation for graduate programs such as business and law. 

Bachelor of Arts in Economics

The BA in Economics introduces students to modern economics within the context of a broad-based liberal arts curriculum. The degree is oriented toward students with interest in the less quantitative features of economics and a broader liberal arts education, particularly in areas offered by the College of Arts and Sciences. The degree requires students develop a depth of knowledge in a coordinate field (minor or secondary major) outside of economics.

Bachelor of Science in Economics

The BS in Economics program introduces students to modern economics within the context of a general scientific and humanities curriculum. This degree is oriented towards students interested in acquiring a broad-based education with a focus on quantitative and professional skills.

The program is designed to provide students with an understanding of the market system, as well as economic institutions, policies and development. In addition to this deep coverage of economics, the major includes liberal arts and sciences requirements. The degree stipulates that students either complete one of the specific economic concentrations (Business Economics or Mathematical Economics) or develop a depth of knowledge in a minor or secondary major field outside of economics. The BS in Economics program provides excellent training for graduate school in economics.

The BS in Economics offers concentration choices in both Business Economics and Mathematical Economics.

Business Economics Concentration

This concentration prepares students to apply the rigorous methods of modern quantitative economics as professionals in a business context. This program combines coursework in economics and the functional fields of business administration within the context of a general scientific and humanities curriculum.

Mathematical Economics Concentration

This concentration prepares students for graduate study in quantitative and rigorous programs in economics and related fields. This program will also prepare students for professional work in quantitative economics or closely related areas, by providing coursework in economics and mathematics, in the context of a general scientific and humanities curriculum.

Coordinate Field Option

As an alternative to choosing one of these concentrations, students may also personalize their degree by developing a depth of knowledge in a minor or secondary major field outside of economics such as finance, social sciences, international studies or natural sciences. Examples of possible coordinating minors could include a minor in History and Politics for students interested in political economy or policy studies; a minor in American or European Studies for students interested in the economics of those countries, or a minor in Communication for students interested in economic journalism. In addition, students can complete a specialization in business economics or mathematical economics as an area of concentration. 

Minor in Economics

The minor in Economics provides a solid background in the application of economic theory to markets. Students complete standard courses in micro- and macroeconomics that emphasize core training in economic decision making. Students also choose a course that applies this training to areas such as international economics, firm and industry behavior, quantitative economic analysis, and public policy. This type of analytical training provides a strong complement to many majors, including business fields, but would be especially useful for students interested in careers in public policy or law. 

Minor in International Economics

The minor in International Economics is designed for students with varied backgrounds who have a particular interest in learning more about the international economic environment. The curriculum provides the students a basic understanding of economics and exposes them to advanced topics dealing with international trade, multinational corporations, and other aspects of international economics. The minor complements a variety of degrees, particularly for students interested in applying their major discipline within an international context or within a multinational corporation.

Degree Requirements (BS)

While a variety of options are available for study in coordinating fields, two specific concentrations have been developed to address key areas in economics.

  • The business economics concentration
  • The mathematical economics concentration

The requirements for those concentrations are listed beneath the general requirements for the BS in Economics program.

Writing-Intensive Course Requirements

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.

A "WI" next to a course in this catalog may indicate that this course can fulfill a writing-intensive requirement. For the most up-to-date list of writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Writing Intensive Course List at the University Writing Program. Students scheduling their courses can also conduct a search for courses with the attribute "WI" to bring up a list of all writing-intensive courses available that term.
