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 College of Education and Public Policy.

Prior to your junior year, the College  of Education and Public Policy requires that you successfully complete EDUC F200/M101, EDUC W200/M101, and EDUC K306 and the Pearson Basic Skills test or approved alternative (see an education advisor for a list of approved alternatives) before admission to Block 1 education courses. The Pearson Content Exam must be completed before the student-teaching semester.
