The Economics Department provides students with an opportunity to study the major economic relationships present in every society. Students will study alternative ways of meeting needs within institutional and resource constraints.
Students who wish to major in economics may choose from two courses of study leading to either a B.A. degree through the School of Liberal Arts or a B.S. degree through the School of Business. For information on the B.S. degree, please see the economics section under the School of Business.
The B.A. program offers students the methodology and analytical techniques appropriate for graduate work in economics and related professions such as Planning, Public Administration, and Law. It provides a foundation for research and analysis in academic and government institutions. Students will explore both theoretical and quantitative analysis, including work with general software and advanced statistical packages.
