Major, Minor, Courses


Upon successful completion of the major in Economics or the joint Economics-Math major and Emory's core curriculum, students will receive a Bachelor of Arts that is certified as a STEM major because of its quantitative nature. The joint Economics-Human Health major is not certified as a STEM major at this time.

Please note that our joint Economics-Human Health major does not have a STEM designation for international student OPT purposes. This major does not require the additional courses required for a STEM designation because we are hoping to target students on a wide variety of career paths, including some who are trying to balance the major requirements with a number of pre-health requirements and others who are more interested in the humanities perspective.
