The Bachelor of Arts (BA) major provides valuable training for students interested in general management positions, public sector careers or attending law school or graduate school in the social sciences with electives in poverty and discrimination, public finance and international economics.
Economics helps us understand and explain a variety of topics such as employment, inflation, business cycles, economic growth, markets, production, distribution, wages, profits, interest rates, money, taxes, competition, monopoly, international trade, economic history, public policy and many others. Courses range from the very practical and applied to the more abstract and theoretical.
The economics major provides students with a strong foundation in economics and the opportunity to select from a broad range of upper-division courses. It allows the flexibility to design a program related to a student's individual interests. Students considering an economics major are urged to consult with an Economics Program advisor to tailor a program best suited to their individual goals.
The most recent requirements for the BA degree may be found in the Economics Departments Course Catalog listings.
