The importance of having a broad background in economics is increasingly recognized by firms that confront problems requiring knowledge of the domestic and international economic systems. Economists occupy a wide range of positions in profit and non-profit enterprises as well as in government. As well as being highly recommended for pre-law students, the economics concentration is offered for students who aim for careers in banking, finance, government, or industry.

Students may also pursue a major or minor in this field within the College of Arts and Sciences; the requirements for this BA degree can be found under that College. Students expecting to pursue graduate study in economics are encouraged to take calculus through MATH 259.
