B.A. in Economics


In an increasingly interconnected world, where commerce, employment, banking, investing, currencies and trade affect everyone, an education in economics is more important than ever. Economists grapple with some of the most pressing issues facing society, including globalization and standards of living in the developing world, the impact of public policy on the economy and the balance between environmental goals and economic growth. The 120-credit Bachelor of Arts degree program in Economics is a comprehensive examination of the economies of the United States and the world, led by distinguished professors with backgrounds in a diverse range of economics disciplines.

Graduates of the B.A. in Economics can aspire to careers as lawyers specializing in corporate laws and regulations; industry and financial analysts; policy analysts working for governments and nongovernmental organizations; aid workers helping poor countries improve their economies, and diplomats specializing in the relationship between industry and government, to name just a few.

Small classes, faculty with expertise in diverse areas, and a comprehensive examination of the economies of the United States and the world provide students with excellent career preparation.
