The Economics Field of Study curriculum is designed for students seeking a bachelor’s degree with a major in economics. There are two tracks: one is intended for transfer into a Bachelor of Science program, the other for a Bachelor of Arts program.

Austin Community College’s (ACC) field of study courses for the two economics tracks are listed below. The Field of Study Curricula for Economics consist of 12-13 lower-division semester credit hours that are fully transferable to other Texas public colleges and universities.
