Concentrations

Students who choose our BS in Economics can choose one of two concentrations, or our coordinate field option:

Business Economics

Mathematical Economics

Prepares you for graduate study in quantitative and rigorous programs in economics and related fields. This program also prepares you for professional work in quantitative economics or closely related areas by providing coursework in economics and mathematics in the context of a general scientific and humanities curriculum.

Coordinate Field Option

As an alternative to choosing a concentration, you may also personalize your degree by developing a depth of knowledge in a secondary minor or major field outside of economics — such as finance, social sciences, international studies or natural sciences.
