Major:
Economics (B.A., B.S.)

Academically equivalent, both bachelor’s of art and bachelor’s of science will full prepare you for a career in economics. Economics is traditionally viewed as a liberal arts major and therefore students often choose the B.A. degree.

A department-approved supporting program with a minimum of 12 hours outside the economics major is required.
