Majoring in Economics

Two options are available for the major: Economics and Economics with Mathematical Emphasis.

  • The Economics option is a well-rounded program of study that, while requiring analytical skills and math proficiency, focuses more on examination of policy and economics concepts than on quantitative analysis or modeling.
  • The Economics with Mathematical Emphasis option supplements the economics major with additional requirements in mathematical and statistical coursework. This option is recommended for students considering graduate studies in economics or pursuing a career as a professional economist or in an analytics-based field.
