When studying for a degree in economics there are two degrees you can major in with regards to economics. Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BSc). The Bachelor of Arts main focus is on psychology and sociology and deals more with qualitative units, it incorporates the depths of economics discipline with liberal arts and a foreign language.

The Bachelor of Science focuses more on the application of mathematics and the techniques used as well as the theory of statistics. The BSc degree is more an applied field of economics.

If you are looking to maybe achieve your P.h.D in economics or doing a double major of maybe economics-mathematics, then doing a Bachelor of Science can be a really good advantage to any of these further qualifications. Economic majors discuss and learn about economic theory and economic systems. They are all about investigating how scarce or how resources are used. They want to find out how buying or selling something can be impacted by things happening around the world like taxes or inflation, maybe a downward spiral in the economy. To major in economics one must keep in mind that they need to have a good set of verbal and written skills in order to be able to convey their message across to the people of the economy especially in interviews and presentations.
