Overview

“Thinking like an economist” requires analytical skills and the ability to identify economic issues and problems while framing issues in ways other people do not see. This way of reasoning also means devising policy proposals for addressing problems and analyzing both the intended and unintended effect of these policies.

The BSAE equips students with tools necessary to apply economic concepts and theories to explain a variety of situations and decisions. With proficiency in the use of statistical and mathematical tools, students will be able to analyze and quantify economic relations to gain knowledge of the framework of the economy.

The BAE degree provides students with flexibility to use economics as a tool to explore and understand human behavior; contemporary social issues such as poverty, discrimination, and economic justice; history; culture; and international relations. This degree gives students depth of knowledge and skills, while providing a multidisciplinary breadth of understanding that is sought and essential for many careers.

A major in economics develops students’ competence to reason logically and analytically about a wide range of problems that apply to business, government, and global markets. Economics majors find rewarding careers in such diverse fields as banking and finance, consulting, management, market research, sales, insurance, real estate, health care administration, law or public administration. In addition, a degree in economics is an excellent preparation for acceptance into various graduate programs.
