Bachelor of Science (B.S.)

International Economics and International Relations

In our interconnected world, countries depend on each other for investment, trade and other financial transactions. The study of economics, viewed through a lens of global interdependence, allows students to analyze and understand the impact trade agreements, development policies, currency rates and other economic factors have on financial markets, the environment, governments and, most importantly, citizens. 

The program’s economics curriculum is centered around building quantitative and analytical skills through classes such as statistics and banking. The international relations component of the major examines international economics, sustainable development, law and international organizations, among other topics.  Students will have opportunities -- in the classroom, at campus-based research centers and through professional internships  -- to develop highly sought after skills that can be applied to careers in business, government, and internationally focused organizations.
