Academic Programs in Economics

B.A. or B.S. Degree in Economics

Department Requirement

Our department requires all economics majors to complete a capstone research paper in conjunction with any 400-level economics course. In this paper you are expected to demonstrate a satisfactory ability to analyze an economic issue or problem and explain your findings effectively in writing.

The research paper is evaluated and jointly approved by the professor of the corresponding 400-level economics course and the director of undergraduate studies.

Degree Options

We offer both Teaching Licensure and Honors degree options for majors.
