Teach Important Economic Life Skills

Economic education for K-12 students is increasingly important. When they grasp microeconomic and macroeconomic concepts, they’ll be prepared to make solid plans for their personal finances: loans, taxes, insurance, stocks and banking. They will also develop a foundation to succeed professionally.


The economics requirements for this degree are the same as those for the other economics majors.

Additional required courses include:

  • Nine courses in political science, geography and history (a total of 27 hours), including POSC150, GEOG120, HIST104 and HIST206
  • Education courses: EDUC413, 414, 419, 420, 400 and 430
  • History courses: HIST491 and 493
