Bachelor of Arts 

This major is designed for the student who expects to be working in the business or government sectors of the economy, but wishes to take advantage of liberal arts courses in philosophy, humanities, and social sciences to acquire the flexibility necessary to succeed in new situations and to master new information. This concentration differs from the concentration in economics in the breadth of knowledge required of functional business fields and in the areas of application of economic analysis.

Required Courses

Academic programs vary in their requirements. Students should consult with their faculty advisor and the Academic Guidebook to review the Academic Planning Form pertinent to their program of study.
