The School of Economics

Modern economics is analytically rigorous, requiring a background in mathematics and statistics. At the same time,it is critically linked with the other social sciences and humanities, as well as to the more practical management and policy studies. The undergraduate curriculum provides a strong and broadening overview of economic thought and policy.

The School of Economics provides high-quality programs of study leading to a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics (ECON). The program focuses on skills and knowledge critical for a life of learning and leading to careers in management, the public sector, academics, and the professions. A degree in economics is especially appropriate for students intending to pursue advanced degrees in the social sciences and in professional schools of management, law, and public administration.
