Economics students study a substantial core of economic theory and mathematical and statistical methods that aid in addressing these questions. The required core can be combined with electives that emphasize specialized areas such as international economics, finance, public policy, applied microeconomics, law and economics, economic development, quantitative methods, macroeconomics, game theory and behavioral economics. A focus on core theory as well as mathematical and quantitative tools provides a foundation for graduate studies in economics. Selecting a range of electives to sample the broad domain of economics offers an excellent background for students who plan to enter careers in the private sector, in public service, the non-profit sector or to attend law school or other professional schools.

Information on major requirements, major qualification policy and declaration information, policies, planners, etc., can be found in the general catalog information for the economics major program.
