BA in Economics
Mon-Fri, 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Within a concentration in development, students are prepared for a variety of careers working with international development agencies or governments in the developing world. A regional emphasis in Latin America, Asia, or Africa may be pursued. Research and field internships will be arranged with development agencies to give students work experience and exposure to job opportunities.
In the course of their training, students become acquainted with the principal concerns and issues faced by developing countries-what are the goals, appropriate strategies, and technologies that best fit their unique circumstances and needs?
Students may select additional courses from related fields such as statistics, sociology, regional politics and history, environmental studies, or from USF's School of Management. Students may undertake an internship (ECON 396) or complete a research project (ECON 398) in which they demonstrate mastery of development economics.
