B.A. in Economics

Here at Chicago we aim to convey the ideas and methods of academic economics.  Broadly defined, economics is the study of how society allocates scarce resources. From principles to advanced topics classes, from preparatory courses in mathematics and statistics to research opportunities, the program strives to convey how economists reason and how they analyze models and compare model implications to observations.

Chicago students use their B.A. in economics for a wide range of career paths that include further professional degrees in law, business, and medicine, graduate level work in applied economics and economic policy, as well as Ph.D. training for economic research careers.

The B.A. program in economics is intended to equip students with the basic tools to understand the operation of a modern economy.

We want to acquaint our students with economic models of individuals as consumers and producers, of price determination through their interaction in markets, models of income and employment determination, as well as develop our students’ basic skills to test these models’ predictions against knowledge of the real world. Such real world information may be constructed from available cross-section or time-series information, from experiments, and from their own observations.

Such a scientific approach to economics must rely on mathematics and statistics in the design of our major. These courses are offered at different levels, as we understand that our majors have a range of academic, private and public sector paths in mind.
