BA in Economics

Drexel LeBow’s Bachelor of Arts in Economics introduces students to modern economics within the context of a broad liberal arts curriculum. The degree is well suited for students interested in the relation of economics to the other social science disciplines and humanities, and it provides an even broader liberal arts education than the Bachelor of Science in Economics. The BA in Economics offers students the flexibility to combine their studies in economics with a major or minor in another field of study.

Complementary Areas of Study 

Examples of the combination of economics with a second area of study: 

  • Economics and Political Science: Combining these two majors provides strong preparation for careers in law and government.  
  • Economics and Environmental Studies: Combining these two majors provides strong preparation for careers in environmental consulting, government and public policy. 
  • Economics and Global Studies: Combining these two majors provides strong preparation for careers in government, public policy and diplomacy. 
  • Economics and Biology: Combining these two majors provides strong preparation for careers in the pharmacy and biotech industries, and for jobs in the biostatistics and bioinformatics areas.
