Knowledge of mathematics is vital for students planning to pursue graduate study in economics. Students headed for graduate school are urged to seek the advice of members of the economics faculty in shaping their courses of study. Majors in economics who intend to pursue a Master of Business Administration degree or seek employment in the financial sector are advised to take courses in accounting. Economics majors interested in the consulting field should acquire strong computer skills and excellent writing skills, the latter through additional courses in English or journalism. Advanced study of a foreign language is essential for students interested in international career opportunities. Economics majors are encouraged to study abroad.

Honors: An Honors Program in economics is offered for qualified students; see department head by March 1st of junior year for details.
