Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) in Economics St. Edward's University


Course info


Students pursuing a degree in Economics can earn either a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) in Economics. Both options give students the opportunity to examine how societies use available resources to meet human needs.

In the Economics program, students learn how goods and services are produced and distributed across the globe and how prices are set in competitive markets. They identify the causes of economic growth, unemployment and inflation and study the role of banking, money supply and interest rates in our domestic and global economy.

Case studies, such as the impact of inflation rates on the world monetary system or problems faced by small business entrepreneurs, offer students opportunities to see direct examples of economic concerns. Faculty encourage students to incorporate different perspectives to apply their knowledge to business decisions, public policy, and any aspect of life in which resources are scarce.

Students will explore topics such as:

  • How consumers make rational decisions
  • How businesses can efficiently produce goods
  • Government regulation, mergers and business policies
  • Reasons for wage differences across various occupations
  • Current economic issues, such as the environment and health care
  • What causes economic prosperity and recession
  • Taxes, government spending, deficit and surpluses
  • The increasing importance of international trade

Major Requirements: The Economics degree plan requires 70 hours of major coursework.

General Education Requirements: All majors require 44 hours of general education that students complete over the course of four years, in addition to their major courses.
