Undergraduate Programs in Economics

The Bachelor of Arts Program in Economics degree is designed to offer students maximum flexibility in designing a program of study. Students have flexibility in the choice of their electives, or can choose an option in one of the following areas.


  • Money and Financial Markets
  • Global Trade and Finance
  • Public Policy and Sustainability

The Bachelor of Science Program in Analytical Economics (for students entering Fall 2017) differs from the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in that it requires more quantitative and data analysis courses but does not require a foreign language. It provides more structure and direction than the B.A. degree and is more professionally focused.
