An undergraduate degree in economics can prepare you for careers in business, financial services, banking, government, education, journalism — and get you ready for graduate school. Economics graduates are in high demand in both the public and private sectors and often work as budget analysts, survey researchers, and management and operations analysts.
Economics Undergraduate Degrees
The Economics Department offers two bachelor's degrees and a minor in economics.
The B.A. in Economics program emphasizes an analytical approach used in problem solving, observation, inference from data, and presentation skills.
The B.S. in Economics program focuses on a mathematical approach to economics as well as related computational skills and statistical analysis.
A dual major also is possible with any other discipline in the College of Arts & Sciences, providing all college requirements are met and the requirements for the full major are met in both disciplines.
