A major in Economics prepares the student to transfer to four year institutions where they may complete baccalaureate degrees in Economics and other disciplines. Most careers in teaching, government, and large corporations deriving from the study of Economics require a graduate degree in the field, while a Bachelorʼs degree in Economics generally qualifies the student for the same types of employment available to those who hold general business or liberal arts degrees.

In addition to a career as an economist, those who possess advanced degrees choose from careers such as accountants, attorneys, auditors, computer systems engineers, credit analysts, financial planners, statisticians, and treasurers. Other fields in which economists are employed include arbitration, budget analysis, business/ market analysis, business/economic forecasting, commodities, industrial relations, investment analysis, labor relations, manpower, transportation, international business, marketing, natural resources, and operations research.
