The Economics Department offers programs leading to the Bachelor of Science and the Bachelor of Business Administration degree.

Economics majors are competitive for jobs in business and industry, local, regional, national, or international government agencies and social service institutions in both the public and private sectors. The economics major also is a good foundation for graduate training in business (MBA or Ph.D.), economics (M.A., M.S. or Ph.D.), public administration, law, and related areas.
