Coles College of Business
Department of Economics, Finance, & Quantitative Analysis
Economics is all about the study of how and why businesses decide what to produce, how to produce it, and how to share it. In today’s economy of scarcer resources, predicting where resources are needed and allocating them appropriately is essential for success. If you have a talent for analysis and a keen eye for observing trends and predicting outcomes, you should consider a Major in Economics. As an economics graduate, you’ll be able to find work in fields such as management, marketing, financial research, economic planning, and human resources. You can even explore careers in trade, banking, and government. If you’re not ready to go right into the workplace, your degree will also prepare you to continue your education in graduate school.
This is a suggested 4-year schedule of courses based on the Economics degree requirements and course prerequisites in the Fall 2017 Undergraduate Catalog. (If course prerequisites change, you must meet the prerequisites in effect when you take the course, so always check the current Catalog for course prerequisites.)
This is a gated program. All business majors must successfully complete BUSA 2150 and the Coles College Sophomore GPA Requirement, and be admitted to the Coles Undergraduate Professional Program.
Milestones: All courses indicated as a Milestone with this icon ( ) should be completed in the term suggested to prevent delays in program completion.
Disclaimer: An academic map is a suggested four-year schedule of courses based on degree requirements in the KSU undergraduate catalog. This sample schedule serves as a general guideline to help build a full schedule each term. Some departments allow students to use the three credit first-year seminar course as a free elective for a degree program, which may impact the program's total credit hours. Milestones, courses, and special requirements necessary for timely progress to complete a major are designated to keep you on track to graduate in four years. Missing milestones could delay your program. Enrolled Students should reference DegreeWorks and not this plan.
This map is not a substitute for academic advisement—contact your advisor if you have any questions about scheduling or about your degree requirements. Also see the current undergraduate catalog (catalog.kennesaw.edu) for a complete list of requirements and electives. Note: Requirements are continually under revision, and there is no guarantee they will not be changed or revoked; contact the department and/or program area for current information.
You may choose to attend a summer term to reduce your load during fall or spring terms but still stay on track to graduate in four years.
