Bachelor's Degree in Economics
B.A or B.S. in economics; minor
Economists study the implications of important decisions, whether it be a business expansion, tax increases or anything with financial consequences.
We train future economists to have not only a solid understanding of economic theory, but also the technical tools to apply their knowledge to make informed choices.
Students in many majors, such as economics, connect with each other by sharing their experiences and learning opportunities.
The K-State difference
If you prefer to build your own area of emphasis or obtain a second major, the general economics degree allows for great flexibility. Students from any discipline may choose an economics minor to round out their studies.
Exceptional students may be eligible for an accelerated Master of Arts program, allowing them to complete both a bachelor's and master's degree in economics in five years.
