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.

You may be certified as a teacher of social studies after fulfilling all requirements for the B.A. with a major in economics and all requirements for teacher certification. Full information on teacher certification requirements is available from the School of Education.

Prior to your junior year, the School of Education requires that you successfully complete EDUA F300, EDUC W200/M101, and EDUC 201 and the Pre-Professional Skills Test  (PPST) before admission to the teacher education program. The PRAXIS II Specialty Area Exam must be completed before or during the student-teaching semester, normally in your senior year.
