Economics

Description

Students will learn to express information in a variety of ways and develop critical thinking skills while processing the information. Studying economics helps students learn an analytical approach to thinking that will serve them in other courses of study and future endeavors. Besides general education courses, the curriculum focuses on business law and accounting, statistics, and how principles of micro- and macroeconomics function under various economic structures, policies and capital markets.

Preparation

High school students should have taken courses in geometry and algebra. However, these courses are not mandatory for success.

Requirements

Students who complete the requirements earn an Associate in Arts degree.

BSC has cooperative agreements with Dickinson State University and Minot State University and several other four-year institutions that allow students to continue with a bachelor’s degree on the BSC campus. Those transferring to other institutions should consult the catalog of that institution for BSC course modifications.

Contact your BSC advisor for assistance with transfer planning.
