Department of Economics

The Department of Economics offers three BS degrees: Economics (General), Economics (Business), and Economics (Law). The General concentration is our most popular program. It consists of a core economics component, but has up to 30 free elective hours (10 courses) that allows students to concentrate in any field they desire. For instance, economics majors may take 18-21 hours in biology/pre-med, fashion design, construction management, political science, mathematics, etc. The Business concentration has the same core economics component as Economics (General), but 21 hours are filled with “business” courses such as finance, accounting, marketing, and management. The Law concentration, which is one of only a handful in the entire country, allows 21 hours for philosophy, communications, and business law courses.

Our majors have been placed in a variety of public and private sector companies as well as some of the most prestigious law and graduate programs.  As one of the highest-paying majors of all university degrees, we offer an exciting opportunity to start your professional career at the most advanced level possible.

Consistent with the mission of the College of Business and Economics, the mission of the Department of Economics is to prepare highly competent and globally competitive graduates in the field of Economics. Our mission is accomplished through effective teaching provided by faculty engaged in relevant current scholarship. We emphasize excellence in all that we do. We pursue this mission in an environment that promotes mastery of knowledge and understanding, and acquisition of the competencies and skills necessary for success in the professional world, and in discipline-specific graduate study. Our mission includes preparing graduates who exemplify the values of good citizenship in a culturally diverse and technologically competitive world.
