This combination will be appropriate for students planning to pursue careers in government, business, law, or international relations. While combining some aspects of a traditional political economy approach, this concentration will also heighten students' knowledge of the institutional and legal dimensions of major public policy debates.

Economics B.S.


The Bachelor of Science degree is anchored by a strong core of required economics, mathematics, and statistics courses that provide a solid foundation of analytical and quantitative reasoning. Flexibility comes from selecting one of six concentrations to complement the economics foundation courses. Each concentration has been designed to meet the specific and interests of students focused upon a variety of career or professional options. By partnering with other disciplines, our students are assured of gaining insights from cross-disciplinary studies.

Course Requirements


Note:

Students taking ECO 113 - Principles of Economics Credits: 4  should not take ECO 101  or ECO 102 . Only six hours of Principles credits will count toward the 27 required credit hours in Economics.

Concentration Requirements


Students may choose from pre-approved concentrations or seek departmental approval for a concentration of their own design. The decision regarding one's concentration should be made normally during the sophomore year. The current pre-approved concentrations are: business, data science, mathematics, political science, public administration, and the social sciences. Each of the concentrations (other than social sciences) has been structured to ensure students earn a minor in the complementary discipline.

Political Science Concentration


Note:


MAT 140A  or MAT 140B  not required if math placement test level is 5 or 6.

Note:


To fulfill the requirements for the minor in Political Science, students will have to complete PLS 141  and one additional course.
