Economics (B.S.)


The markets never sleep

The B.S in Economics prepares students for the job market and graduate school by providing broad and deep training in the field of economics itself and by developing one's skills in critical thinking and analysis.

Economics majors develop the aptitude to operate in a wide range of business entities and to succeed in graduate programs in business, social science and law. Graduates of economics exhibit strong scores in the graduate entrance examinations across the board. Course work includes both theory and application and is designed to build and develop student assessments of the world through an economics lens. As a long-standing field in academe, economics has extensive ties to mathematics, statistics, and philosophy as it pertains to economic, social, business and political environments. Students trained in economics are particularly strong candidates for jobs in business functions requiring strategic thinking, analytical skills, writing and presentations. Industries that highly value the undergraduate degree in economics include banking and finance, economic journalism, law, business, government service, and non-university teaching.
