Lon Carlson Office: Stevenson Hall 439-A Academic Requirements: Majoring in Economics helps you develop important skills, including critical thinking and analytical reasoning. These general skills are valuable for any job or occupa- tion. Thus, a degree in Economics provides you with the flexibility to adapt in a changing environment and take advantage of new opportunities. This flexibility is impor- tant because, if you are typical, you will change jobs or occupations about six times in your lifetime. One of the main advantages of an Economics degree is the wide range of careers that are available to graduates. Economics majors find jobs in a variety of settings, includ- ing private industry; federal, state, and local government; international organizations and education. Over the past several years, graduates of the Economics program at Illi- nois State University have pursued a variety of careers, including positions in entry-level business/management, sales, data processing, staff analysis and research, and teaching. An undergraduate degree in economics is also excellent preparation for students who plan to pursue grad- uate-level studies in economics, business, and law. 176 C A S Communication; Economics

Besides providing flexibility in the job market, the Economics major provides you with flexibility in your aca- demic career. Only 33 hours are required for the major and only 18 hours are required for the minor. Specific course requirements for the major and the minor are indicated below. The low number of hours required for the Economics Major or Minor gives you the flexibility to combine it with a major or minor in other disciplines to design your academic program to fit your life goals.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
