BA in Economics

With a degree in economics, you can go anywhere.

Combine theoretical analysis with the empirical study of institutions to find a focus on the pragmatic aspects of economics.

At the Robert B. Willumstad School of Business, you will study the impact of current economic policy issues on individual, national, and global scales. Accomplished faculty members conduct research in the areas of economic development, environmental economics, history of economic thought, human capital theory, labor economics, international economics, and systems of political economy.

Many students who obtain a BA in Economics go on to study for a graduate degree in economics, business administration, or law. Others enter directly into employment in financial services, consulting, government, and related areas.

Students must additionally choose between a theory/analysis track and a policy/political economy track.
