Welcome to the Department of Economics
Welcome to the Economics Program at Armstrong Atlantic State University. This site contains information about the economics program and faculty. In addition, there is information and links to other websites of interest to those in the economics field.
The Department of Economics offers a bachelor of arts in economics with a choice between a general economics track, a business economics track, and an international economics track. Starting in the Fall of 2014, the Economics Department will offer a bachelor of science in business economics. Also offered is a minor in economics, a minor in business and a financial economics certificate.
General Economics Track: provides a thorough understanding of the economy, and prepares students for immediate employment in analytically demanding professions and prepares students for graduate study in academic and professional programs.
Business Economics Track: provides a foundation in economics while emphasizing business application and entrepreneurship, prepares students for employment in the private sector and readies students for graduate study in business.
International Economics Track: provides a deeper understanding of the international economy, prepares students to compete in a global economy, and prepares students for policy and professional programs with an international focus.
Bacherlor of Science in Business Economics: blends knowledge of economics with business skills and offers students an option to make their degree unique to their intended career goals by requiring a minor.
The Department of Economics offers several non-classroom learning experiences. Students in both tracks may engage in research with faculty direction, gain experience from internships, or broaden their perspective on the world by participating in study abroad programs through the economics department or Office of International Education.
The Department of Economics maintains a close link with the business community. Through the department's economics advisory board, a large number of internship opportunities are available to economics' students.
Many of the Department of Economics' students present their papers in academic conferences and several of their research papers have been published in refereed academic journals.
The Department of Economics also houses the Center for Regional Analysis, which services the information and applied research needs of regional business, government, and community organizations. The center provides opportunities for students to work in close contact with faculty members to develop valuable research and communication skills. In the past, the center has collaborated with leading-name organizations in the region, including the Savannah Area Chamber of Commerce, Savannah Convention and Visitors Bureau, Savannah Economic Development Authority, and the City of Savannah, among others.
