Economics Major, B.A./B.S.

Romain College of Business 

39 hours

The study of economics prepares students to use the tools of analytical reasoning in the discussion of the basic problems of modern societies. Issues such as business cycles, affluence, poverty, inflation, unemployment, efficiency, equity, and growth, are presented and discussed within the framework of existing institutions of the advanced and underdeveloped worlds. Major and minor programs in economics are designed to prepare students for careers in law, private business, and government and to provide a solid foundation for graduate work in business and the social sciences. The curriculum offers a balanced blending of analytical reasoning, critical discussion of current problems, and quantitative methods.

Students interested in economics may elect a major program leading to the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree. The minor in economics is an excellent complement to a major in business, humanities, and the physical and social sciences. Students majoring in business need only three additional economics courses to get a minor in economics.

Economics and computer science majors are offered in the Romain College of Business but are not business majors. Students enrolled in these programs do not take the Business Core.
