Economics is the study of the rational allocation of scarce resources. The major seeks to develop those critical skills that help you understand and solve problems in a wide variety of circumstances. These analytical abilities are valuable in the business world and many professional disciplines such as law and social work.

This program is offered in close cooperation with the Department of Economics in the Richard T. Doermer School of Business and Management Sciences, which offers all economics courses required for the major.

To earn the B.A. with a major in economics, you must fulfill the requirements of IPFW (see Part 7) and the School of Arts and Sciences (see Part 3), in addition to the following requirements.
