The economics discipline is a way of thinking about the world and the factors that influence and shape human actions. Economists have applied their science to the study of many forms of human endeavor. A major in economics gives students a way of analytically reasoning through problems. Whether they are interested in a career in private industry, government, public policy or the nonprofit sector, a degree in economics provides them with the tools to succeed. Being in a vibrant metropolitan area offers a great many advantages to our students, including access to internships with many top firms and organizations within the Milwaukee metro area. Our internships are carefully designed to guarantee that students attain valuable work experience. Students can even gain an inside track on jobs with those firms once they graduate. Our alumni have gone on to successful careers in many different areas including, but not limited to, policy analysts, practicing attorney, futures traders, banking analysts and business consultants. The major in economics consists of nine courses (27 credit hours) in economics: four required courses (12 credit hours) and 15 additional credit hours of upper division economics courses. In addition to the economics courses, two mathematics and statistics courses (6-8 credit hours) are required as listed below. Economics (ECON) majors are also required to take two additional social science courses outside of the ECON major. This requirement can be satisfied by taking any two courses that have one or more of the following subject codes: ANTH, CRLS, POSC, PSYC, SOCI, or SOWJ. Courses with the ANTH subject code must be in the area of cultural anthropology rather than biological anthropology. A minimum grade of C must be earned in each of the major courses, including those numbered 3000 and above, (and including the required core courses: ECON 3003 Intermediate Microeconomic Analysis and ECON 3004 Intermediate Macroeconomic Analysis).
