In the Department of Economics, students can earn a Bachelor of Science in Economics or a business degree with a specialization in economics, or they can minor in economics. A Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in economics is also available in conjunction with BGSU’s College of Arts and Sciences.

At the graduate level, students can earn a Master of Arts in Financial Economics which is known for its rigorous curriculum in macro- and micro-economic theory, econometrics, and financial analysis.  We also have an accelerated program for undergraduates interested in finishing their graduate degree early.

Our department is proud of its faculty! We've had Distinguished Teaching Professors and a Master Teacher as well as experts in the field of economics. The department hosts conferences and colloquia each year that bring renowned economists to campus and we host an undergraduate student paper contest and conference.
