A major in economics can be designed to serve a variety of purposes in the general liberal arts and can provide a background for postgraduate study in a number of professional schools. In addition, economics is frequently taken as a dual major with business at the undergraduate level. Among the graduate-level options which can be pursued by economics majors are law, business, professional-level training in economics, public administration, professional health management, hospital administration, urban affairs, and transportation studies. Because the range of interests among economics majors is quite broad, students are encouraged to work out a plan of studies fitting their individual needs with a departmental advisor.
