This truly interdisciplinary program stands at the intersection of math-centered economics and international relations. Students will learn about economic theory and apply field and mathematical tools as they develop their analytic skills. The mathematical courses will explore how calculus and linear algebra techniques are used to derive the main results from mathematical models of economic behavior. The economics courses examine economic relationships between businesses, households, and governments while focusing on the application of theory to practice. The international relations component of this major examines international economics, sustainable development, law and international organizations, among other topics. Through this course of study, students will learn about the economic factors that influence international affairs and how global events impact state and local economies. Students will have opportunities in the classroom and through professional internships to develop and apply skills in policy development and analysis.
