Economics, B.S.

Students desiring a more flexible program than outlined in the B.B.A. degree in Economics may elect to pursue a B.S. degree in Economics. Candidates for this degree are not required to complete the Jennings A. Jones College of Business requirements, but they must meet the specific B.S. degree requirements listed in this catalog (Academic Policies and Procedures).

Any student electing the B.S. alternative should consult directly with the department chair to develop an acceptable degree program. This degree is offered through the College of Liberal Arts and is not considered a degree in business administration. A maximum of 25 percent of courses for a B.S. degree in Economics can be taken in business courses. Students must complete at least one minor.
