Bachelor's Degree in Economics

Both the School of Liberal Arts and the School of Business offer economics degrees. So which do you choose? Pursuing an economics degree in the School of Liberal Arts (B.A.) is ideal if you: would prefer to take a social or analytical approach to studying economics; are interested in examining economic relationships on a global scale; want flexibility in your career choice; or are considering an MBA. The B.A. in economics allows for customization, especially within the liberal arts. You may choose to pair it with a second major in communication, government or international studies. Regardless, the B.A. in economics, combined with the writing, interpersonal and critical thinking skills developed through a liberal arts education, will prepare you for a competitive career. Pursuing an economics degree in the School of Business (B.S.) is ideal if you: excel at and enjoy mathematics; want to pursue hands-on economics such as trading or studying financial markets; want to pursue a master’s degree or Ph.D. in economics; are interested in taking business-centric electives; or, want to double major in finance or another business program. Whether you pursue a B.S. or a B.A. in economics, you will study a liberal arts core at Manhattan College. These are the classes that hone your writing, interpersonal and critical thinking skills. Your business courses round out your education and provide the more technical, quantitative skills.
