The Economics degree program offers two options (listed below) for students pursuing studies in Economics. Both Economics options prepare students for graduate studies in economics as well as employment in business and finance. The study of economics also provides a good background for students who want to prepare for a career in law. Students may declare only one of the Economics options.

Business Economics Option  is designed to provide students with an understanding of economic principles underlying the business world. The option shows the relationships between the study of economics and basic business decision-making both from the standpoint of the individual firm and from the standpoint of a business operating in the national and global economy. Students choosing the Business Economics option will be prepared to either continue graduate study in economics or to become employed in government and business. The Economics-Business Economics option degree program is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB).

Economics Option  focuses primarily on economic principles and is designed to provide students with an understanding of the present economic system and how economics relates to other disciplines and fields of study. The option is designed for students who desire to study economics but do not wish to take all of the common requirement courses prescribed for Business Administration majors. Students choosing the Economics option will have the flexibility to pursue minors in other areas as well as to prepare for teaching certification. The Economics-Economics Option is excluded from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB) accredited degree programs.
