The Economics emphasis, Associate of Science degree is designed for students planning to transfer to Oregon State University’s (OSU) College of Liberal Arts to complete a baccalaureate degree in Economics. It is important that students check with the Economics transfer curriculum advisor before enrolling in these classes.

OSU offers both Bachelor of Arts (BA) and Bachelor of Science (BS) degrees in Economics. The BA requires that students take two years of a college-level foreign language. While this is not a requirement of this Associate of Science degree, it is highly recommended that students complete this coursework at LBCC, or after transfer using the Degree Partnership Program. The BS degree requires 15 additional credits in math, science, and computer science -- work with an advisor and talk about ways to meet these requirements at LBCC.

Program Requirements

Students expecting to graduate in two years should have a strong interest in the economy. They should have sufficient skills in mathematics and writing to enroll in MTH 111Z Precalculus I: Functions and WR 121Z Composition I.
