What will I learn?

The combined major in computer science and economics integrates fundamental economics courses with a strong programming foundation. Studying both the behavior of individuals and the collective behavior of industries and governments, students will utilize computing skills to address complex issues within the field.

Khoury College offers combined majors with over 25 partner disciplines. Combined majors are carefully constructed degrees allowing students to explore multiple academic fields while staying on track for graduation. Each of the combined majors offers the opportunity for intense study in two disciplines with appropriate breadth in the liberal arts. Students take nine to 13 courses in each subject and at least one integrative course that binds the disciplines together. These programs offer an excellent educational opportunity for the ambitious student.
