Our economics program provides an understanding of the theoretical tools of economic analysis and their application to economics issues that concern individuals, firms and/or nations, either in the domestic setting or internationally. Students acquire the analytical and problem-solving skills needed to investigate and critically evaluate economic conditions and trends.
The B.A. offers students a strong background in economics while allowing them to double major in another discipline such as history, political science or psychology. Coursework prepares students for a wide variety of career opportunities in business and government as well as graduate study.
To earn the bachelor's degree, students take a minimum of 11 courses (33 credits).
