Areas of Study

Economics

The economics curriculum at Christopher Newport integrates the liberal arts with the core functional areas of economics and the quantitative ability needed to address today’s pressing economic and public-policy issues. We offer a bachelor of arts degree in economics, a concentration in mathematical economics and a minor in economics.

Students develop their analytical abilities with a core curriculum of theory and applied methods courses. You can then choose electives according to your interests, whether in government, law, mathematical economics or other areas.
