• Bachelor of Arts in Economics


    Economics is a social science related to business in the same way that physics is related to engineering, or biology to medicine. It focuses on the principles underlying the operation of the economy. Students who enjoy abstract analysis will find the economics major interesting and challenging. Study of mathematics is a useful adjunct and is essential for students planning graduate study in this field. Careers in the field of economics (academic, government, public service, profit, and nonprofit industries) usually require a graduate degree. A large proportion of the economics majors go to graduate school. The remainder typically find employment in the same types of jobs as management majors.
