Stillman School of Business


The Department of Economics provides students with a solid foundation in the discipline of economics. For undergraduate students majoring in economics, the objectives of the program are threefold: to help develop a thorough understanding of the economic relationships between business, households and government, and the principles governing these relationships; to help develop proper analytical methods and modes of inquiry that will prepare students for careers in business, government and education; and to prepare the groundwork necessary for graduate studies in economics and related fields.

The course offerings of the department enable students to major in economics either through the College of Arts and Sciences or the Stillman School, leading to the degrees of Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, respectively. Students concentrating in economics should plan to take at least one elective per semester during junior and senior year. The department will offer two electives each semester on a rotating basis.
Note: A concentration in economics is not offered in the evening.

To concentrate in economics, students must complete the core courses with a 3.0 GPA. View the B.S. in Business Administration core curriculum>>
