The Economics Department offers four paths to a Bachelors Degree, one through the College of Business and three through the College of Letters and Science.

The Econ BBA

Over half of our majors choose to pursue a BBA through the College of Business. Besides requiring that you fulfill the College’s pre-core and core requirements, the Econ BBA requires 15 to 21 additional upper level Econ credits.

The Econ L&S BA or BS

Many of our majors choose to purse either a BA or BS degree in the College of Letters and Sciences. Besides meeting the College requirements for those degrees, the Econ BA/BS requires a 15 credit core. The additional requirements depend upon whether you choose the Quantitative, General, or International Emphasis.
