Economics (B.A.)

Preparation for a career in economics requires a broad background in basic economic theory and an in-depth study of the quantitative tools important to the economist. In light of the emphasis on the quantitative approach to economic theory, students are advised to select courses in mathematics and computer science beyond those specifically required in the economics curriculum. Please refer to the Department of Business website for additional information and requirements: www.etown.edu/depts/business/advising.
