Economics (ECNS) - (ARCHIVE)

The Economics major is a program of study with a liberal arts orientation. The broad liberal arts background serves as a foundation for advanced study in the methods and techniques of economic analysis. Use of mainframe and microcomputers as analytical and problem-solving tools is emphasized in the program's upper-division courses. Students may choose upper-division courses in several areas of specialization, including business cycles and forecasting, economic theory, international economics, labor economics, managerial economics, and regional economics.

For the B.A. degree in Economics, a minimum of 122 credits is required. A student enrolled in this major must earn at least a grade of C in each 300- and 400-level course.

ECONOMICS MINOR: Students must take ECON 002 GS(3), 004 GS(3), and select additional courses (at least 6 credits at the 400 level) in BECON, ECNS, or ECON for a total of 18 credits.
