Duration4 Years
LevelBachelors Program
  • The Mines B.S. in Economics is more mathematical than almost any other undergraduate degrees in economics
  • Every economics student takes 3 semesters of calculus and differential equations as part of the Mines core. That math background gives the students another important set of tools to learn and apply economics
  • The educational objectives of the undergraduate program in economics are:
    • To provide students with a strong foundation in economic theory and analytical techniques, taking advantage of the mathematical and quantitative abilities of CSM undergraduate students
    • To prepare students for the workforce, especially in organizations in CSM’s areas of traditional strength (engineering, applied science, mathematics, and computer science), and for graduate school, especially in economics, business and law
  • Students majoring in Economics will see what people with training in economics do in the real world. At the end of the field session, students will be able to answer questions about professional economists including:
    • How do they apply economic models and methods to do their jobs?
    • How do they communicate economics to their stakeholders?
    • How does knowledge from the classroom translate into a variety of business and government organizations?
