Major in Economics

What will happen next in the economy? Financiers, politicians, and journalists all turn to economists for the answer. Here, students study how resources are allocated to maximize well-being, why prices fluctuate and where and how individuals make choices. For students, an economics degree opens up a variety of career options across various fields.

Learn more about the study of economics, careers, and preparing for graduate school from the American Economic Association (AEA).

As an economics major, students also have the opportunity to take advantage of the Flexible BBA, allowing them to double major in management, marketing, finance or economics with little to no extra courses.
