Department of Economics
Curious about how society allocates scarce resources in areas such as natural resources, economic development, and international trade? The Department of Economics offers a comprehensive curriculum to prepare students for employment with financial intuitions, government, or pursue graduate studies.
Our students are equipped with key economic concepts and laws that ultimately give them the analytical perspective needed for being a professional economist. Graduates have gone on to become program associations, analysts, economists, and consultants at organizations across the country.
All programs in our Economics program include the necessary undergraduate economics courses for students who intend to pursue graduate level study. The major in Business Economics and the major in Economics offer a quantitative track which is recommended for students preparing for graduate study in Economics or Actuarial Science.
