Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

This concentration would be especially well-suited for students preparing for graduate study in economics, which has become increasingly focused upon mathematics and statistical analysis.

Students are strongly encouraged to take ECO 484 Mathematical Economics  and ECO 485 Econometrics  as economics electives.

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.

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.
