The Economics program, which is housed in the Department of Politics, Economics, and International Studies , offers both a major and a minor.

The B.A. in Economics is offered by the College of Arts and Sciences. Courses are taught by economists in the College of Arts and Sciences and in the Barney School of Business’s Department of Economics, Finance, and Insurance.

The program serves the needs of three groups of students: those who wish to major in economics in the context of a liberal education; those not concentrating in economics but wishing to improve their understanding of the economic aspect of society; and those specializing in related fields, who find courses offered in this program contributing to their areas of specialization.

The economics major provides an appropriate foundation for a broad variety of careers. It is a valuable background for many business and governmental employments. Economics is a preferred major for graduate work in economics, business and public administration, law, and foreign service.
