B.S. in Economics - Online Degree Completion Concentration

COMING SOON!

Economics is the study of how people manage their scarce resources. As trends in education change, we feel that it is important for economics knowledge to be accessible to students pursing alternative paths. We have created a fully online bachelors degree for students interested in completing the remainder of their undergraduate education.

This major is intended for students who (1) have completed an eligible transferrable Associate’s Degree (does not include the Applied Science degree) or are within 6 hours of completing their core curriculum/general education requirements, or (2) wish to be readmitted to Radford University who are within 6 hours of completing their core curriculum/general education requirements. This major is only available for transfer and readmitted students who are unable to complete a degree on campus. All courses will be available in an online format.

The B.S. in Economics - Online Degree Completion Concentration explores decision-making behavior as well as the system of social, political, cultural and commercial environments where these decisions happen. This major places particular emphasis on critical reasoning, analytical thinking, scientific reasoning, argument and persuasion, real-world problem-solving and self-motivation. Students explore topics in poverty, inequality, sustainability, politics, trade and economy.

This program involves 12 ECON courses, 3 courses developing technical skills (MATH/STAT/ITEC) and 2 courses from outside the Davis College of Business and Economics. Students then fill open electives with other online courses available from Radford University.

Program Requirements

ECONOMICS COURSEWORK (36 credit hours)

TECHNICAL SKILL (9-10 credit hours)

BS REQUIREMENTS (6-8 credit hours)

Students must take 6-8 credit hours of courses outside the Davis College of Business and Economics.
