Economics, B.S.


The interaction and interdependence between nations, communities, and individuals creates opportunities and challenges. Economics, as a fully developed social science with robust quantitative techniques, has evolved to straddle social science, business, and public policy. As such, it has tremendous abilities to help in allocating scarce resources among competing and legitimate options in the business and public domains. Graduates with an Economics degree are in high demand in many sectors of the economy. They are also uniquely qualified to pursue graduate studies.

Program Goals:

Upon successful completion of the Bachelor of Science in Economics degree, students will:

  • demonstrate a solid understanding and use of economics terminology and tools.
  • demonstrate competence to analyze and solve undergraduate level economic problems using the appropriate tools and methods.
  • master the ability to analyze economic issues on macro and micro levels.
  • demonstrate the ability to evaluate benefits of trade and role of economic policy in modern economies.
  • master the ability to conduct research in different areas of economics.
  • secure a career in their field or pursue graduate study.
