The Economics Department offers both an economics major and a business economics major. Students may select courses from a wide variety of areas, including international trade and finance, economic development, fiscal economics, money and banking, labor economics, the political economy of race and class, the political economy of women, environmental economics and sports economics.

The department offers two different concentrations that lead to the B.A. in economics: one leads to a traditional economics degree, the other emphasizes international political economy and public policy. Moreover, courses in the economics major may be combined with a professional sequence leading to qualification for initial certification as a teacher of secondary social studies.

The major in business economics allows students with career goals in various management-related fields to acquire the skills necessary for such careers. The major leads to the award of the bachelor of arts or bachelor of science.
