Economics - BA

Program Contact: Dr. Shailendra Gajanan

Do you read the financial or business section of a newspaper or news Web site? Are you interested in what the chairman of the Federal Reserve Board has to say? And, unlike any of your friends, you actually know his name. Then you’d probably be interested in our economics major      

In our program, you’ll analyze and study basic principles. You’ll review economic policy decisions and their effects. But you can also get involved – really involved. Join our Business Club. Compete in the AT&T Stock Challenge. Work on research with your professors.  

With your economics degree, you’ll be able to find a good job. Our economics graduates are working at American Express, at banks and financial institutions, and at chambers of commerce in large cities. Or, you can go on to graduate school and study law, business administration, or political science.
