Economics Degree Program Details

Economics

Objectives of the program

The study of economics involves an analytical look at how scarce resources are allocated to various areas of production. It emphasizes the importance of making choices between desirable alternatives. The study of economics provides tools to make these choices in such areas as employment, economic growth, price stability, and trade. The bachelor of science in economics is especially suited for students who wish to combine a major in economics with concentrated study in other disciplines. The B.S. in economics requires three more economics courses than the economics specialization in the bachelor of science in business administration (BSBA), but the B.S. in economics permits students to choose their own cognate field of study (15 hours). Students can expand the number of hours in the cognate field to achieve a second major in such areas as sociology, political science, history, mathematics, or psychology. Students may also combine a major in economics with business fields such as accounting, finance, legal studies, marketing, or management. This program provides students with a meaningful educational experience that is suitable for employment in a wide variety of occupations in business or government, and for continued study in graduate schools in economics, business, law, and other fields.
