As your studies progress you'll take more specific courses that will allow you to apply your broad understanding of economic theory to narrow, real-like issues. The mode of instruction for these courses is most often the traditional lecture format.
Typical core courses encountered in economics degree programs include economic statistics, international trade and finance, the history of economics, poverty and development, industrial organization systems and public policy analysis. Complimenting your core coursework will be a smattering of liberal arts and humanities electives. You'll want to choose your electives wisely for history and social science courses can facilitate the understanding of economics in a wider matrix.
Be certain to carefully examine the economics degree programs you are considering. Some programs emphasize the theoretical while others stress practical analysis of economic systems. Deciding which perspective you want to view economics from will help determine what auxiliary courses you'll need to take. You'll also want to find out what other degree requirements are involved in your program. Internships, Capstone projects and senior thesis projects are often degree requirements.
The career outlook for individuals with a bachelor's degree in economics depends entirely on which direction you choose to go. Some graduates decide to continue their studies at the master's or doctoral level. Here you can specialize in an advanced area of the field such as econometrics or industrial organization. These graduate degrees can lead to careers such as senior research analyst or university professor.
If the bachelor's is your terminal degree you still have plenty of career options. Economics can be the educational pathway for jobs such as business manager, sales manager or economic analyst. You may also find job opportunities in fields such as education, the non-profit sector or public policy.
