At the undergraduate level, students can learn about the methods of analysis that economists use and about the various fields of inquiry where economists have been most productive. Principles courses introduce students to both the methodology and the fields and thus provide a foundation for both the Bachelor of Arts and the Bachelor of Science curriculums. In the BA track, students learn how economics is applied to various real-world problems, as well as, the fundamental methodological tools. In the BS track, students focus more attention on the methodology of economic analysis, which requires more emphasis on quantitative skills than the BA. For a full description of the two tracks, look at the Major Requirements.
