A Bachelor of Arts, or BA, is an academic achievement typically earned after a three or four-year course of study in a liberal arts-related subject area such as fine arts, social sciences, philosophy or humanities. Students who successfully earn a Bachelor of Arts are prepared for careers in a wide variety of industries, and the degree is also a prerequisite for most advanced degrees.

Just what is a BA in Economics? A Bachelor of Arts in Economics combines both literal and quantitative coursework in an effort to prepare students for work in national and international corporations, unions, financial institutions, agribusiness and various levels of government. Students in a typical Bachelor of Arts in Economics program will study micro and macro-economics, cost analysis, strategic pricing, statistical forecasting and market research, among other related areas.

Bachelor of Arts in Economics holders are generally able to apply for more positions and command higher salaries than those without degrees. In addition to increased career and financial opportunities, degree-holders may also choose to pursue a higher academic degree in business economics or public administration, or a similar field.

Bachelor of Arts in Economics

University of Prince Edward Island
Campus Full time September 2017 Canada Charlottetown

Economics belongs to the branch of knowledge known as the "Social Sciences." The social sciences deal with both intergenerational and intra-generational interactions between human beings in a society. [+]

Economics belongs to the branch of knowledge known as the "Social Sciences." The social sciences deal with both intergenerational and intra-generational interactions between human beings in a society. Human activities can, of course, be studied from many different perspectives. We could look at humans as political, psychological, historical, or economic beings. A political scientist, for example, would analyze the political activities of the people while an economist would examine activities related to their livelihood. Human beings, in order to fulfil their innate desire for food and shelter, engage in activities that lead them to the production of goods such as food, clothing, and housing, as well as services. These acts of production and consumption to satisfy human wants form the very basis of the subject matter of Economics. Perhaps observing people engaged in this pursuit, Alfred Marshall defined economics as "a study of mankind in the ordinary business of life." Since the ordinary business of life involves the use of limited natural and human-made resources (capital), people have always been interested in making the best possible use of these resources. This efficient use of resources has been the underlying theme in economics. Hence, the most succinct definition of economics would be that economics deals with the efficient utilization of scarce resources to satisfy human wants. Scarcity gives legitimacy to economics. If there is no scarcity, there is no economic problem. The discipline of Economics is built upon two strands of theory: Microeconomic Theory and Macroeconomic Theory. Microeconomic deals with the study of individual units in an economy, such as consumers, producers, and the interaction of these units in a given market structure. Macroeconomic theory, on the other hand, deals with the economy as a whole. Here we analyze the problems related to unemployment, growth, inflation, and the balance of payments. Most of the other courses in Economics are applied courses which use the concepts of Microeconomic Theory and/ or Macroeconomic Theory. An understanding of the relationship between these two theory courses and other fields in economics is usually helpful in planning your selection of courses. REQUIREMENTS FOR A MAJOR IN ECONOMICS Students wishing to major in Economics must complete fifty- four semester hours in Economics and Mathematics according to the program described below. All courses are valued at three semester hours. Economics 101 - Introductory Microeconomics 102 - Introductory Macroeconomics 203 - Intermediate Microeconomics I 204 - Intermediate Macroeconomics I 305 - Intermediate Microeconomics II 306 - Intermediate Macroeconomics II One of: 307 (Formerly 231) - Mathematical Economics 303 - Economic Methodology 308 (Formerly 411) - Introduction to Econometrics PLUS: Seven (7) additional elective courses in economics, at least three of which must be at the 300 or 400 level. Mathematics 111 Finite Mathematics 112 Calculus for the Managerial, Social, and Life Sciences OR 191 and 192 – Single Variable Calculus I and II Statistics 221 - Introductory Statistics I OR Business 251 - Introduction to Management Science Recommendation Students planning to follow graduate studies in Economics are advised to plan their courses with the Department. Such students should include the following courses as part of their seven electives in Economics: 307 - Mathematical Economics and 308 - Econometrics as well as 403 - Advanced Microeconomics and 404 - Macroeconomics. The Department further recommends that students who wish to go on to graduate studies choose Mathematics 191 and Mathematics 192, rather than Mathematics 112, as a stronger base for additional Mathematics courses. Students should also consider including Mathematics 261 (Linear Algebra) in their program of studies. [-]

Bachelor in International Political Economy & Diplomacy

University of Bridgeport

In an era where there is a growing focus on economic diplomacy, UB’s B.A. in International Political Economy and Diplomacy fills a crucial niche. The major provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the global political economy and with the analytical skills needed to evaluate change and direction. [+]

BAs in Economics. In an era where there is a growing focus on economic diplomacy, UB’s B.A. in International Political Economy and Diplomacy fills a crucial niche. The major provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the global political economy and with the analytical skills needed to evaluate change and direction. The study of the international economic system provides insight into how it produces and distributes wealth. The study of the international political system provides insight into how institutions and rules govern social and economic development. Because diplomatic negotiations form the basis of new international law, and because diplomacy operates within the framework of extant international law, the study of diplomacy is an important component in the study of international political economy. Political economy represents a nexus between politics and economics, and international political economy includes study of the area in which international politics and international economics meet. It represents an investigation of the political basis of economic action and the economic basis of political action. An important additional consideration is the role of international law in circumscribing political and economic activity. Recent graduates of the program have gone on to top graduate programs including Harvard, London, Johns Hopkins, Wisconsin and Columbia. IPED graduates are now working in places such as the UN, major INGOs and in numerous other international organizations and corporations. Honor Societies The College of Public and International Affairs houses chapters of Pi Gamma Mu, the National Social Science Honor Society; Sigma Iota Rho, the National Honor Society for International Studies and Pi Sigma Alpha, the National Political Science Honor Society. Careers in International Political Economy and Diplomacy Political economy represents a nexus between politics and economics, and international political economy includes the study of the area in which international politics and international economics meet. It represents an investigation of the political basis of economic action and the economic basis of political action. Students graduating from this program will therefore be prepared for graduate work at schools such as Yale University, Columbia University, and the University of London. Career tracks: Government Official International Banker Teacher/ College Professor Political Analyst Campaign Manager Lobbyist Legislative Assistant Judge Risk Analyst Consultant Public Relations Manager Or explore possibilities in Corporate and Multinational Organizations Global and Domestic Marketing International Public Service International Non-Government Organizations Learning Outcomes The IPED program has the following learning outcomes: Students will demonstrate an ability to explain and compare different political and economic systems; Students will be able to reflect on the role of culture, history and religion in international political economy; Students will be able to explain the role of diplomacy and conflict resolution in international relations; Students will demonstrate a basic working knowledge of a world language other than one’s mother tongue; Students will demonstrate the ability to use critical thinking in their evaluation of issues and problems in international political economy; Students will demonstrate practical skills in helping resolve global disputes through diplomacy and conflict resolution. * Note for all College of Public and International Affairs majors, a portfolio is collected to track progress in programmatic outcomes [-]

BA Economics

University of Denver
Campus Full time September 2017 USA Denver

These certainly do seem to be interesting times in which to be studying economics.The college students of today have discovered themselves to be living in a rather turbulent economic landscape, to say the least. [+]

BA Economics “May you live in interesting times!” — reputed to be an ancient Chinese curse. These certainly do seem to be interesting times in which to be studying economics. The college students of today have discovered themselves to be living in a rather turbulent economic landscape, to say the least. As well, the political leadership and the electorate,and even the economics profession to some extent, seem to be having trouble agreeing on what to do about this. Here at the University of Denver students in economics seek to understand how the social apparatus which governs the production and distribution of goods and services works. Students inquire into the causes of the process of economic growth and development, both within and across nations, and examine its social impact. They study topics such as the availability and consequences of government policy alternatives, the relation of the financial markets to the economy, the impact of the increasing globalization of economic activities, or the interaction of the economy with both the natural and the social environment. They also study how economic theories have developed over time to address these various topics. The major uniqueness of our program is due to the fact that our faculty have a somewhat broader view of what Economics is about than is found in the average Economics program in the U.S. We present alternative perspectives on the historical and present-day relevance of our material. Our curricula encourage students not to take in received knowledge as the truth but to examine it and question it. We regard the economy as one element of a complex society, so we feel that to understand the aspects of society pertaining to Economics, students have to understand something about the other elements as well. Related benefits arising from our approach are that it decreases the “dryness” of Economics often experienced by students and that it lends itself quite readily to emphasizing the importance of writing. Indeed, theDepartment prides itself on the fact that we emphasize written assignments and critical thinking in our assessment of student performance. We also consider our use of primary sources and greater reading assignments than one finds in the typical U.S.Economics curriculum to be huge benefits to our students. The study of Economics provides students with the knowledge required to be a strong citizen-participant in economic affairs. Economics majors are prepared for a wide variety of careers in government, business, finance, politics, and education. It is also an ideal major for students who plan to pursue higher degrees in law, business, or international studies. Indeed, the kinds of writing and mathematical skills that a student can acquire in our program can prove to be very valuable to a graduate, no matter what road he or she may follow. [-]
