Economics (Arts and Sciences)

The program in economics combines a broad liberal education with the rigorous study of important topics such as markets, employment, economic growth, business  organization, wealth, inflation, health, environment, taxes, and the international economy.

Courses offered in the Department of Economics, housed in the Haslam College of Business, provide an opportunity for a major or minor in economics in the College of Arts and Sciences.

In addition, certification to teach economics in secondary schools is available. Students with such interest should consult the College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences as early in their program as possible to determine the appropriate requirements.
