In this program students must maintain a GPA of 3.00 to take Honors courses and remain in the Honors Program. All Honors Program students will be reviewed yearly. Any Honors students falling below a 3.00 GPA at the end of any year of study will be contacted and removed from the Honors Program. They are also required to complete the requirements for the Bachelor of Science in Economics. Economics combines theoretical models and analysis of economic data to explore a wide range of interesting and important policy and business issues such as when and how the government should regulate a monopoly, what the Federal Reserve Bank can do to prevent recessions, and how restrictions on international trade, such as tariffs on imported steel, impact individual firms and consumers as well as the economy as a whole. The primary goal of the economics curriculum is to provide students with the intellectual tools needed to effectively analyze economic and business issues and to participate in economic policy debate. These tools include theoretical models designed to understand and predict economic behavior, and statistical techniques used to interpret economic data and measure economic performance. The application of theoretical and statistical tools to explore real world economic and business issues is emphasized throughout the curriculum, particularly in the elective courses.
