Economics Major (BA)


Economics is a social science related to business in the same way that physics is related to biology or medicine. It focuses on the principles underlying the operation of the economy. Students who enjoy abstract analysis will find the economics major interesting and challenging. Study of mathematics is a useful adjunct and is essential for students planning graduate study in this field.  The economics major prepares students for analytical occupations, typically in business, or for graduate work in law, economics, public policy or related fields.
