The Department of Economics offers majors in both the College of Arts and Sciences and in the Darla Moore School of Business .
Economics majors in the College of Arts and Sciences may earn the B.A. or B.S. degree by completing the 24-hour major requirement along with the college core, distribution requirements, and cultural-awareness and writing-emphasis requirements as described in the basic degree requirements in arts and sciences.
Business economics majors in the Moore School of Business may opt for a 12-hour major or a 24-hour intensive major as described in the degree requirements for the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. This major combines course work in economics with business core, which includes course work in management science, accounting, management, marketing, and finance, along with a general education core.
Students are encouraged to talk with an advisor in the economics department to gain further information about the differences between the B.A. and B.S. in economics in the College of Arts and Sciences and the business economics major in the Moore School of Business.
