Economics Program

The BA in economics is prescribed and administered by the College of Arts & Sciences.  Courses are taught by economists in the College of Arts & Sciences and in the Barney School of Business’s Department of Economics, Finance, and Insurance. 

The program serves the needs of three groups of students: those who wish to major in economics in the context of a liberal education; those not concentrating in economics but wishing to improve their understanding of the economic aspect of society; and those specializing in related fields, who find coursework in economics contributing to their areas of specialization.

The economics major provides an appropriate foundation for a broad variety of careers.  It is a valuable background for employment in the governmental or business sectors.  Economics is a preferred major for wishing to pursue graduate work in economics, business and public administration, law or foreign service.
