Students majoring in economics may elect to specialize in the following professional career areas: business, labor economics, money and banking, public finance, international trade, law, economics education, healthcare, economic development, government, and entrepreneurship. Those planning to enter the field of economics should have above average reading, comprehension, and computational skills.

Since programs differ at each of the four-year colleges, students who intend to transfer should consider program outlines published by the college or university. Students should prepare their quarterly schedules with the assistance of an advisor knowledgeable in this transfer area.
