The economics curriculum is designed to serve a variety of student educational objectives. Emphasis is placed on understanding economic behavior and institutions and the development of specific analytical skills. An economics major is especially appropriate for students interested in careers within business, accounting, law, government or teaching.
Students majoring in economics take a combination of courses suited to their particular interests. Major requirements are flexible and, with department approval, can be modified to fit the program interests of individual students. Liberal provisions are made for the individual student, either as a major or as a non-major, to choose electives from an extensive list of special-interest courses.
