The Department of Economics offers a variety of programs for undergraduate students interested in economics: a Bachelor of Arts with a major in economics, a Bachelor of Science with majors in economics and business economics (see the School of Business Administration portion of this catalog) and a Bachelor of Science with a major in actuarial science that is jointly offered with the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.

Through their scholarly contributions and strong academic record, the work of Oakland’s expert economic faculty researchers advances the understanding of complex business issues and provides the highest quality instruction to Oakland University students. Our faculty have published in highly visible journals and have been recognized by the University for their research and teaching excellence. Partnering with the community extends the impact of their work while also bringing real-world research opportunities and business experiences to students. These collaborations enhance the school’s rigorous economic curriculum, increase the activities of our economic student organizations, and prepares graduates for the next step in their future.

The department presents the Economics Advisory Board Lecture annually which invites elite economists or business leaders nationally to discuss current and important economic issues with students.
