From small business to Wall Street, from town hall meetings to global policy summits, the study of economics gives students the tools necessary to better understand the world we live in. The discipline complements many other areas of study including computer science, history, political science, law, accounting, psychology, sociology, and statistics.
We offer a Bachelor of Science in Business Economics and a Bachelor of Arts in Economics, as well as a minor in Economics. The rigor of our major and minor programs gives students skills that enable them to compete successfully in an ever changing world and job market.
