Advisor: Deb Fitzgerald
 Bachelor of Arts
 Hours: 49-50
Admission Requirements: To graduate with a departmental major, students must first earn admission to the department. This typically occurs during the spring semester of the second year, and late-entry transfer students apply for admission after their first semester at EMU. Students must have department admission to apply for an internship and several upper-level courses. Students seek admission to the department by completing an application and an interview with their advisor; they must meet the GPA requirement of 2.00 overall and 2.50 for major courses taken at EMU. Students must maintain these GPA standards to retain admission and to graduate from the department.

Many courses in the department have prerequisites; this requirement is met by earning a letter grade of C or higher on the prerequisite course before enrolling in subsequent courses (a grade of C- does not meet this requirement).

Economics helps explain markets and transactions, wealth and poverty, financial events, government programs and policies, and the structure of societies. As one of the classical disciplines, economics examines many of society's most fundamental and controversial issues and seeks to explain human behavior. The major in economics is designed for students with interests in either graduate studies (law, history, economics, business, sociology, political science, international affairs, conflict transformation, development) or immediate employment in the public or private sector.
