Economics is a fascinating subject, poised at the intersection between business and social science, and with great relevance for a wide range of public policy issues.
The Department of Economics at Lindner is an exceptional place to learn at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The Economics department offers four degrees: Bachelors of Arts in Economics, Bachelor of Business Administration in Business Economics, Master of Arts in Applied Economics and a PhD in Business with a concentration in Economics.

The BA-Economics blends a curriculum comprised of liberal arts and economics courses. This mix serves students seeking a solid base of arts and sciences with extensive economics coursework. Many Economics majors choose to double major in disciplines such as mathematics, political science, international affairs, etc.
The BBA-Business Economics integrates liberal arts, business and economics coursework. This degree builds a strong business foundation, as students examine business functions and their interactions with economics. Many Business Economics majors complement their degree with a double major or a minor in another business discipline (e.g., finance, accounting, marketing, international business). Most students can double major without spending any additional time at UC!
Students may select economics as a minor, allowing them to add economics as a second area of expertise to their chosen major.
Another important part of our program is the ability to co-op/intern in an economics related field. Through these internships, students acquire a real-world knowledge of their discipline, which further prepares them for their career. Both the Economics and Business Economics majors are eligible for these co-op/intern positions.
