Colorado State University recently launched its online Bachelor of Arts in Economics to provide undergraduate students a solid understanding of how to interpret data, policy, and research to inform decisions. The degree is designed to take students beyond math and finance, into an understanding of how economics affect everyday life.
Preparing Industry Leaders
Offered through the College of Liberal Arts, our economics degree prepares individuals to think more broadly and critically through a blended curriculum that merges technical knowledge with an understanding of how human behavior influences economic systems.
As a university, we believe it is important to equip students with a wide range of perspectives so they are able to analyze complex problems from multiple angles – a valuable skill in today’s rapidly changing global marketplace.
Creating Career Paths
“Economics is a truly interesting and important subject that opens many doors in business, law, government and academia,” explained Dr. Steven Shulman, economics professor and chair. “A degree in economics sends employers a signal that you understand how the economy works, that you have useful quantitative and analytical skills, and that you are intellectually ambitious.”
The economy dominates the future of every business. Those with the power to understand it, interpret its impact, and make informed decisions and predictions based on it can create a future for themselves in any industry. Examples include:
• Public policy
• Real estate
