Associate of Arts Degree

This program is designed so that students receiving an Associate of Arts degree in economics at ACC will be prepared to take junior and senior level courses at any four-year college or university. All the courses in this degree plan must be taken and passed in order to earn an A.A. in Economics. The order, given below, in which these courses should be taken, is just a suggestion. Students may take the courses in any order they want to except for those courses that require a course prerequisite (+). The economics department also suggests that ECON 2302 be taken before ECON 2301.

To receive an Associate of Arts in Economics students must participate in a graduation interview with a fulltime economics instructor during the final semester.
