Major and Minor

What will I learn?

Our broad-based, liberal arts curriculum is designed with the needs of employers in mind. You will develop a strong grasp of the knowledge needed to succeed in a career in economics along with critical thinking, communication and problem-solving skills.

You will utilize the analytical approaches and tools of economics to examine current issues and problems that occur in economic systems. Particular focus is paid to the examination of macroeconomic and microeconomic markets, how they determine what is produced and the role government plays in the allocation of resources.

Looking for a great career?

Majoring in economics provides many diverse opportunities in the job market as well as prepares you for graduate school. Some sectors where our graduates have landed include financial analyst, mortgage analyst, stock broker, investment advisor/manager and policy analyst.

Personalized attention and great career options

A respected, in-demand degree, professors challenging you to go further and experiences that make a difference. If that sounds good to you, see what more the Department of Business Administration and Economics has to offer.
