Program Overview:

Completion of the Economics curriculum is designed to result in an Associate of Arts and meets the general education requirements at all Idaho public universities. Students planning to transfer into a Business Economics program should choose the Business Economics option. Completing the Social Science Economics option will not meet the entrance requirements for most business based economics degrees. Students interested in transferring into a non-business economics program may choose either the Business Economics option or the Social Science Economics option. In either case, students are strongly encouraged to meet with an advisor as soon as possible.
