Bachelor of Science in Economics and Quantitative Methods
We are excited to share that a new degree will soon be available in the Economics Department. The Bachelor of Science in Economics and Quantitative Methods has received final approval from Indiana’s Commission on Higher Education, and we expect that current IU students will be able to declare it for their major as early as the Spring 2023 semester. Students pursuing this degree will acquire a unique set of skills that combine applied quantitative methods with economic reasoning facilitated by the core economics curriculum. Detailed information on degree requirements and degree maps will be available soon.
