B.A. in Economics

Studying Economics teaches students how to analyze and make decisions in a broad range of subject areas including business, governmental policy, international trade, banking and finance. Upon graduation, many students choose careers in these areas or use their knowledge to pursue graduate education in Economics, business administration, public administration, or law. The undergraduate degree program in Economics at Cal State East Bay is designed to equip students with the reasoning skills and problem solving techniques needed to understand a diverse set of issues such as the way individuals and firms make decisions, how businesses and countries interact, and how macroeconomic policies affect economic growth.
