Bachelor of Arts (A. B.) or Bachelor of Science (S. B.)
Economics is the study of how society allocates scarce resources to satisfy its unlimited wants. As such, it is appropriate preparation for students seeking careers in management and the public sector. Students interested in pursuing an MBA may do so through Elmira College's 4+1 MBA program with Clarkson University. It is also a leading pre-law major.
About forty percent of the courses in the major concentrate on economic theory, and twenty percent of the coursework gives students the quantitative tools they need to analyze economic problems. The remaining coursework deals with applied economics.
In addition to the required number of credits needed to complete the major, all students must also fulfill the general degree requirements in order to graduate.
