Global economics is an economics major focusing on global issues with an interdisciplinary element. It is designed to prepare students to understand and participate in the global economy; the program aims to deepen the student's knowledge of economics within a culturally and linguistically diverse world. The major is particularly useful to students contemplating careers at home or overseas in international relations, in international business, or with international organizations. Hence the major requires overseas study, regional area study, and second-language proficiency in addition to the basic economics requirements and additional emphasis in international economics.

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