Bachelor of Science in Economics

Not admitting new students for the 2021-2022 academic year

This 120 credit hour program is designed for the student who desires to gain an appreciation for how the economic system functions. The economics degree program provides an excellent foundation for the student who intends to work in business, government, or the nonprofit sector and for the student who wants to pursue graduate-level training in law, public administration, business administration, or other professional areas.

Academic Advising

The mission of the academic advising program in the Judd Leighton School of Business and Economics is to promote academic success, student satisfaction, and increased retention by providing students with advisors to help students make educational, career, and personal decisions.

The policy on advising requires that students meet with their academic advisors at least once each year, and freshmen and sophomores are required to meet with their academic advisor prior to each semester’s enrollment. Advising holds are placed on all freshmen and sophomores prior to advance registration and are released following advising appointments. To determine who your advisor is and how to contact them, see One.IU.
