Economics

Our unique undergraduate degree provides students with the opportunity to pursue either an economics major supplemented with practical coursework in finance or a traditional economics major which includes a firm theoretical foundation in economics.

Training in Economics and Finance prepares students for a variety of career options—recent graduates from Troy’s undergraduate programs in economics and finance have gone on to pursue careers in areas such as banking, financial services, and compliance, as well as graduate school at both the Master’s and Ph.D. level. While studying at Troy, students in the economics and finance program have been able to pursue internships in areas such as banking, economic analysis, and public policy.

In addition to our undergraduate program, the Department is also home to the Master of Arts degree in Economics. This program is ideal for students preparing for a career in areas such as public policy or economic analysis, or for those students interested in receiving additional technical training prior to pursuit of a Ph.D.
