The programs offered by the Department of Economics are designed to (1) provide a general understanding of the functioning of the economic system and the role of institutions, groups, and regions within that system; and (2) prepare the student for employment in industry, the professions, and government, or to pursue graduate work toward such advanced degrees as the M.A., M.B.A., or Ph.D. in economics, business, or related fields.
Students are strongly advised to monitor their curriculum progress every year with the chair or an adviser in the economics department so that no deficiencies surface during their senior year that cannot be remedied consistent with university regulations.
