Economics

    Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science

    Elia Kacapyr, Professor and Chair

    The Department of Economics curricula offer majors broad coverage of the economic discipline and opportunities for specialization in any of several major areas, such as analytical, quantitative, or international economic. General courses are also available for students in other disciplines who want to gain an understanding of economics.

    The curricular offerings in economics are a B.A. in economics, a B.S. in applied economics (both housed in the Department of Economics), and a B.A. in mathematics-economics (housed in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science). The B.A. in economics is a traditional liberal arts degree, with a core set of requirements surrounded by elective courses.

    The applied economics curriculum includes policy courses in the economics department, and finance and accounting courses in the School of Business. This B.S. program offers students a wide range of career and graduate school options. With most college graduates changing jobs or occupations six or more times in their working careers, this applied economics program is most appropriate.

    Requirements for Honors in Economics

    The honors program for economics, applied economics, and mathematics-economics majors is designed to encourage in-depth study and research at a level above that of a term paper or tutorial. For economics department honors, a special honors paper is required; it may be an extension or improvement of a previously submitted tutorial (required) paper. Students majoring in economics, applied economics, and mathematics-economics with an overall cumulative GPA of 3.00 and a GPA of at least 3.30 in economics courses may qualify for honors in economics. The student selects an economics faculty member as an adviser and submits a written proposal as an application. The research should be conducted during the fall and spring semesters of the student's senior year. The student is required to defend the honors paper before a committee of tutorial instructors and the chair of the department. The committee approves, at its discretion, departmental honors for individual students.
