Bachelor of Arts in Economics
Economics is the science of decision-making. Economists identify and analyze the costs and benefits of financial and social decisions. As an economics major at UMass Dartmouth, you’ll learn how to advise businesses and government on economic issues, collect and analyze data, interpret and forecast market trends, and research economic issues while designing policies to solve them.
UMass Dartmouth’s innovative curriculum provides a sound theoretical foundation in economic theory and economic statistics by focusing on a variety of applied fields. By focusing on international, national, and regional economic problems, issues and policies you’ll gain the practical skills necessary for intelligent decision-making.
Economists pursue careers in business, economic journalism, finance, government, insurance, management, public policy and real estate. Your studies will also prepare you for graduate study in areas such as accounting, business and law.
