The economics department offers majors in economics, economics with management concentration, and accounting. A major in international business is available in conjunction with other departments. Minors are provided in three areas: economics, management, and
Economics: The economics major
emphasizes theory and its applications, along with the
institutional makeup of the economy.
Economics with Management: This major
combines coverage of basic economic theory and its
application with management courses.
Accounting: The accounting major covers
all basic areas of both financial and managerial
accounting, along with tax and business law. This
major prepares a student for many careers in business
and accounting, or for graduate study. Students
planning to take the CPA exam in Ohio and most other
states will be required to have 150 hours of education
with at least a baccalaureate degree in accounting.
This requires additional education beyond the
International Business: (Refer to
International Business in this Catalog). This is an
interdepartmental program designed to assist students
in preparing for careers abroad or where knowledge of
other cultures and languages is useful. Students may
not major in international business and accounting,
economics, nor economics with management. Students who
already have knowledge of several areas of the world
should major in
economics with management if they are interested in this
mix of courses.
All four areas of study may include apprenticeship programs
that allow students to apply their knowledge in off-campus
work. The international business major includes a semester
abroad as part of its program. For students whose area of
study is North America, this requirement is satisfied by
their study in the United States.
