Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs A-Z

Economics is the study of how firms and countries make informed choices. Using tools of economic analysis, economists evaluate the costs and benefits of courses of action in order to choose among alternatives. Economics majors develop ways of thinking that are analytical and rigorous. A degree in economics prepares students for careers in financial services, business, health care, real estate, government and international organizations. Economics also provides an excellent preparation for graduate study in a variety of fields including economics, business law, public administration, and medicine. Coastal Carolina University offers two different degree programs in economics: a Bachelor of Science in business administration (B.S.B.A.) with a major in economics and a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in economics.

Students completing the economics B.S.B.A. program will have competencies in both micro and macro economics.
