With both the B.A. and B.S. degrees, we offer a diverse menu of possible concentrations (tracks) for the economics major.
- Bachelor of Arts: Suggested for students interested in a broad liberal arts economics background. This degree is excellent preparation for a wide range of careers, including law, and provides opportunities for engaging in a double major.
- Bachelor of Science: Suggested for students considering graduate study in economics or business administration, or professional careers in economics, business or the financial industries.
Tailor Your Degree with Specialized Tracks
Within either degree, a student may choose to specialize in certain tracks that differ by subject matter and suitability for the type of post-graduate path the student plans to follow. For example:
- The Political Economy track is often chosen by law students.
- The Mathematical Economics track is best suited for students planning to pursue a Ph.D. in Economics.
- The Applied Economics track is often combined with a Business degree.
- Students who choose to double major commonly combine a B.S. in Economics with a math or science degree, while the B.A. is often combined with political science or international studies.
