Combined Economics Programs

Bachelor of Science in Economics and Data Science

To meet the growing demands of today’s job market, the School of Economics has developed new, interdisciplinary degree options. Students can pursue a STEM-Designated Bachelor of Science with their choice of combined majors, which provides them with an opportunity to build a fundamental understanding of economics while developing specific skill sets in areas such as behavioral science, business, data science, math and public health.

The increasing digitization of today’s economy has made the ability to analyze, interpret and report on data more critical than ever. For economists tasked with finding solutions and trends in business, government and beyond, there is an increased need to understand the complexity of data as well as the best tools and methods to deliver key findings. Drexel’s Bachelor of Science in Economics and Data Science allows undergraduate students to learn from subject matter experts from both the School of Economics and the College of Computing & Informatics.

Program Features:

  • This interdisciplinary, STEM-designated combined degree provides students with the opportunity to receive dedicated support and take classes from both The School of Economics and The College of Computing & Informatics.

  • Through the study of economics, students learn how the design of platforms shapes incentives, drives behavior, and determines social and economic outcomes including equity and efficiency.
